The search of a storage unit, links two Salina men to multiple business burglaries.
According to Lt. Scott Siemsen, officers used a search warrant to open a storage unit in north Salina on Thursday as an investigation widens from a pair of arrests made Wednesday night.
Lt. Siemsen tells KSAL News, "We do feel pretty confident that the people we have arrested are responsible for a majority, if not all the business burglaries we've been having since September of 2012."
Police arrested 31-year-old Michael Cox of 607 West Crawford and 33-year-old Stephen Rowson of 825 Scott on Wednesday after an officer on patrol noticed a suspicious vehicle parked behind Huseman Veterinary Clinic, 119 Indiana.
The officer called for back-up, they entered the building and two men were arrested.
Police say they found numerous items in the storage locker including an electric guitar, pistol and flat screen television that are linked to other burglaries.
Lt. Siemsen tells KSAL News the investigation covers over 30 burglaries across multiple businesses in Salina.
