Suspects in a bowling alley burglary have been bagged by sheriff’s deputies.
Two weeks ago burglars kicked a hole in the side of Sempeck's near 204th & West Dodge in Elkhorn. More than a thousand dollars worth of alcohol and novelty prizes stolen from the bowling alley and fun center.
A finger print from a display cabinet that had been broken into led to a current employee of the bowling alley. Douglas County Sheriff’s detectives interviewed and then arrested Ben Stratton.
Lt. Mark Gentile tells WOWT6 News that led to the arrest of three other suspects identified as Tanner Bradshaw, Paul Wiebelhaus and Gary Manhart.
A search warrant at the home of Paul Wiebelhaus uncovered stolen lava lamps used as novelty prizes at Sempek's fun center. All four suspects have been booked for burglary.
