Kennett police have arrested a woman in connection with a recent string of burglaries and thefts. Now they’re looking for three more suspects.
Tuesday night at a home in the 600-block of Whitney Street officers arrested 29-year-old Christa Montney of Kennett for felony stealing and possession of burglary tools.
According to Police Chief James Paine, officers also located “several stolen items, including evidence of past thefts of air conditioners, copper wire and other items.”
