Grand Island Police arrest burglary suspects
Suspects in a string of recent burglaries in Grand Island remain behind bars Thursday night. A mother and son have been arrested.
24 year old Richard Jarman and his mother Lynnette Jarman were arrested at their home Wednesday morning.
Neighbors who saw it happen say it was a scary situation.
Employees at Sutter Deli witnessed a scary scene Wednesday morning.
"We happened to see one of the guys from the SWAT team go past the window, and we were like what's going on?" said Sherry Rock.
Officers surrounded the Jarman home at 1622 West North Front Street.
A neighbor who wouldn't go on camera gave News 5 pictures of the scene. He said officers were positioned with guns pointed at the Jarman home.
As people watched from inside Sutter Deli they were asked to stay away from the windows.
"They wanted us to not stand anywhere where we could have maybe been shot if he was going to maybe resist," Rock said.
Richard Jarman was arrested on burglary charges earlier this month and released on bond.
Burglaries since his release have now been tied back to him.
"I don't know if you can blame him for all of them, but (the press release says) a minimum of ten burglaries that have occurred since he was released from Hall County Jail," said Butch Hurst, Grand Island Police.
Sutter Deli is actually one of those victims.
"Basically, he just went through the office. Ransacked the office. Really destroyed the file cabinet. Took the money bag. Took a couple of Gene's cell phones and stuff like that," said Rock.
Jarman brought stolen property home implicating his mother.
"She was there. The items were stolen. Obviously she should have known or common sense would tell you that something isn't right," said Hurst.
Their arrests is giving Sherry Rock and people like her a feeling of relief.
Bond was set Thursday morning in Hall County Court.
The Grand Island Police Department is expecting additional charges to be filed against Richard Jarman.
They're continuing their investigation.
