Three charged in 16-county burglary wave
The Hastings Tribune reported Saturday that felony charges have been filed against a trio accused of involvement in at least 40 burglaries spaning rural areas in 16 counties.
William Dressen, Dustan Hallows and Diane Hancokc are belived to have been involved in burglaries which occurred in Nuckolls, Clay, Webster, Adams and 12 other counties. In Adams County alone 95 felony charges have been filed. Additional charges will probably be filed in other counties.
According to the arrest affidavits, the investigation started in 2016. Video cameras reported a gray Jeep Grand Cherokee was often seen near the burglary sites which were in rural areas. In May, Hallows was stopped by Hastings police while driving a gray Jeep that belonged to the parents of his wife. The vehicle was later matched to the Jeep seen in the video files.
Further investigation revealed Hallows had been selling multiple tools online. Investigators tracked Hallows and Dressen to Hancock's home in Holstein. Search warrants were subsequently served on the Hancock home. There a vast array of property thought to be connected to the burglaries was found and removed.
It took officers 16 hours to catalog and remove the evidence.
Hallows is 23, Dressen 38 and Hacock 54.
Charges include possessing a firearm by a prohibited person, possessing a stolen firearm, theft by taking, burglary, conspiracy to committ a burglary, possession of a defaced firearm, accessory to a felony and theft by receiving stolen property.
