UPDATE:  Follow up investigation has led to Carr being charged with 3 additional burglary counts.  The additional charges stem from business burglaries that occurred in the Town and Country area in December and January.  Carr has been booked on the additional charges and is currently being held at OCC.

 

While on duty during the early morning of January 12, 2015, Deputy Ken Russ, Jr. and his K-9 partner, Tomec, observed a suspect break a window and enter a business in the Town and Country area of Monroe.  As the suspect exited the business with stolen merchandise, Dy.
