In the early hours of Monday, February 12, deputies responded to a call at the same address in the 4000 block of N Woodward, for another reported burglary. The residence, equipped with a recently installed security system, had detected unauthorized individuals on the premises. Deputies found no suspects on-site but confirmed another break-in had occurred.
Among the items pilfered during this latest intrusion were an internet modem, security camera, and a suitcase of books, amounting to a total value of $425. Utilizing remote video footage, deputies identified potential suspects as Wallace Holmes, aged 54, and Andrea Randecker, aged 51.
Subsequent investigation efforts led to the procurement of a search warrant for a residence in central Salina. Inside, deputies purportedly uncovered the missing meat and a game camera. Deputies later apprehended both Holmes and Randecker within Salina.
Holmes faces requested charges of two counts of burglary, theft, damage to property, and trespass, while Randecker has requested charges of burglary, theft, trespass, possession of methamphetamine, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
