Meeker County/Litchfield Burglaries 17 Nov 17

The Meeker County Sheriff’s Office and Litchfield Police Department have been investigating 13 burglaries of homes, businesses and sheds since October 1, 2017.

On November 14th, a search warrant was executed in the 400 block of South Austin, Litchfield as a part of these active and ongoing investigations.

Over 200 suspected stolen items were recovered. Items recovered in the search warrant have been linked to four of those burglaries.

A subsequent traffic stop in Cass County led to the recovery of additional stolen items. Multiple suspects have been identified and the investigation continues in an effort to determine if these burglaries are all connected.
