Saline County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to an address on Salem Rd. Friday, 10/26/18, for a report of a male that was breaking into cars parked at residences. When they arrived in the area, they located the suspect, Mr. Shaun Eddings, in a stolen pickup truck behind one of the residences.
When confronted, Mr. Eddings ran on foot into a nearby wooded area, but was quickly caught and arrested. Criminal Investigation Division detectives responded to the scene and discovered that the pickup truck Mr. Eddings had been driving had just been stolen from a Lake Norrell area resident.
Mr. Eddings was booked into the Saline County Jail on charges of Breaking or Entering, Theft of Property, Theft by Receiving, Residential Burglary and Fleeing.
Saline County Sheriff Rodney Wright would like to take this opportunity to remind all County residents to ensure that their vehicles are locked and that they remove all valuables, including ignition keys, before leaving vehicles unattended.
