New paperwork reveals police found a promising lead after a burglar kicked in a home's door, as the 12-year-old girl inside called 911.
The burglary happened Tuesday, April 15th. The home sits just off 75th & Seward.
“I was sitting in the living room on the chair and I hear these loud bangs on the backdoor. I knew he had already broke down the first door so I ran into the bathroom and locked myself in,” Katelyn Allen told WOWT 6 News.
An affidavit reveals officers found Terrell Jackson, 31, climbing over fences near the home. According to the affidavit, Jackson admitted to his involvement in the burglary as well as several others in northwest Omaha.
Jackson told detectives he would drive another man to each burglary. The man would break into the home, and then Jackson would come inside to help. He said they would take the stolen items to a home about a mile and a half away, and keep them there until they found a buyer. They'd sell the items at a parking lot in Council Bluffs.
One of the most recent burglaries happened near 125th & Miami. Several flatscreen televisions and two video game consoles were stolen.
Officers were granted a night-time, no-knock search warrant for the home of Jackson's alleged partner in crime. Investigators searched it, but didn't find any evidence.
WOWT is not naming the residents, as they have not been charged. Jackson was wanted on a domestic assault charge, and is currently sitting in jail on a $50,000 dollar bond.
Jackson is a convicted felon, who was released on parole two years ago, after serving time for robbery.
