Arrest Made in Holdrege Burglary Case


Holdrege authorities say they have caught the man responsible for several recent burglaries and home invasions in the area.

Cody Erickson, 22, was arrested Friday after a search warrant was served in Smith Center, Kan. Erickson is accused of similar crimes there.

In a statement Sunday, Holdrege Police Chief Dennis DaMoude said items were found that linked Smith to the burglaries in both communities.

He's awaiting extradition to Holdrege.

Police continue to investigate the case “to determine if more than one subject was involved.”

Marissa Barrett, 24, of Smith Center was also taken into custody for possessing a controlled substance.
