Authorities Bust Northland Burglary Ring
LIBERTY, Mo. — Authorities in Clay County say that they plan on announcing several arrests and numerous charges next week in connection to a Northland stolen property ring.
The Clay County Sheriff’s Department says that the charges are coming after a seven-month investigation into a string of burglaries across the county.
“We know that we’re going to charge at least two, and possibly four people,” said Sheriff Bob Boydston.
According to Boydston, authorities have recovered around $40,000 worth of stolen property in the latest burglary ring bust – the seventh such bust in the last year-and-a-half.
“They have put all of them in jail and this one is the most current one and they’re gong to go to jail next week,” said Boydston. “The interesting thing that we found out is that this burglary crew has been working all over the Northland and rather than just in the rural areas.”
The latest burglary ring includes cases in Kansas City, Gladstone and Liberty. Authorities say that this latest bust will close at least six burglary cases in Clay County alone.
Details on what was recovered in the investigation will be released after the charges are formally announced, so that it doesn’t interfere with the investigation. But Boydston says that $40,000 figure could go up.
