Cheyenne Police Arrest Burglars
Cheyenne Police responded to 518 East 17th Street about 10 p.m. on Feb. 28, for a report of a residential burglary in progress. Cheyenne Police Department spokesman Officer Dan Long says a watchful citizen in the neighborhood notified police after he heard glass break and saw people climbing in the window of the residence.
Police arrived on scene and found a window at the front of the residence had been broken. Officers could also hear people in the house. Officers entered the house and stopped one man who tried leaving the house through a bathroom window. Long says officers also detained another man inside the house. After further investigation officers determined the men did not reside at the residence and did not have permission to be there.
Long says 26-year-old Cheyenne resident John Hill and 29-year-old Cheyenne resident Colby Paschal were arrested and booked into the jail on burglary charges. Cheyenne Police are still looking for 20-year-old Xavier Taylor who may have been involved in the burglary. If you have any information about this crime call Silent Witness at 638-TIPS and you will remain anonymous. This case remains under investigation by the Cheyenne Police Department.
