On Dec. 15, 2021, at approximately 10:09 a.m., Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to Nike Road in rural Hecker for a burglary in progress. Upon the arrival of the deputies a suspect was located and arrested.
The suspect had an SUV, along with a trailer attached to the SUV, parked in the owner’s driveway. Deputies towed the suspect vehicle along with the trailer.
During the course of the investigation, investigators were granted a search warrant for the suspect vehicle. Once the search warrant was executed, investigators noticed several items inside the vehicle which matched stolen items of a previous burglary investigation that was reported back in October 2021 and had occurred along State Route 156 in the Waterloo area.
