Four arrested in connection to Sidney burglaries

UPDATED: 9:25 AM, April 10: The victim's garage in which the air compressor and cooler were stolen has been determined not to be the residence of Rios' mother. Her house is located directly across the alley from the garage.

SIDNEY, Neb. - A string of burglaries occurred Thursday, April 5, in Cheyenne County. Sidney Police Officer Scott Tobler was dispatched to Walmart in Sidney that morning for a report of theft from a vehicle. Upon arrival, Officer Tobler met with the two victims in the employee parking lot on the north side of the store.

According to the arrest affidavit issued by the Sidney Police Department, the items reported stolen from the gold Pontiac G6 sedan included: a TomTom GPS, a Titanium wedding ring, 1,000 Magic game trading cards, two cell phone charger cords, one checkbook, and one Final Fantasy 8 sword keychain, for a total value estimated at $567.00.  

Upon reviewal of the security cameras on site, it was determined that four people, Tyson Bockhahn, 26 of Dalton, Samantha Rios, 19 of Sidney, La’naya Campos, 19 of Sidney, and Damien Holbrook, 34 of California, entered the employee parking area in a tan-colored Ford F series pickup and attempted to open multiple vehicle doors before finding the victims’ vehicle. After the items were taken, the four entered the store.

Later that same day, Sgt. Justin Loghry and Officer Aaron Rucker were dispatched to a residence on King Street with a report of stolen items from a garage. The victim had left for work that morning and returned home for lunch to see his garage door open and noticed the missing items: a 20-gallon Magna Force compressor with 50’ orange air hose and one green Coleman cooler for a total estimated value of $300. It was later determined that the house across the alley from the victim's garage is the residence of Rios’ mother.

In the meantime, the Ford pickup from the Walmart security footage had been spotted in Dalton at a residence on Wabasha Street, later known to be the home of Bockhahn’s mother.

After obtaining a search warrant, the officers on scene entered the house and found a glass marijuana pipe and a glass methamphetamine pipe in Bockhahn’s bedroom. The officers also were able to see a TomTom GPS in plain view on the dash of the pickup and a green Coleman cooler in the bed of the truck.

A short time later, Bockhahn, Rios and Campos were placed under arrest for charges of Burglary, Possession of a Controlled Substance and Theft. During interviews conducted at the jail, all three admitted to the criminal activity. Holbrook was also arrested for misdemeanor theft by unlawful taking.

All of the stolen items were able to be recovered by law enforcement including the air compressor, which had been sold for $65, and the set of magic cards sold to a local pawn shop for $20.
