Burglary Arrests Made In Pittsburg


On Sunday, September 25, 2016, Law Enforcement Officers from the Pittsburg Police Department responded to The Hitt Pitt, located at 1315 S. Broadway St., Pittsburg, in reference to a report of a burglary. Video surveillance from this burglary was posted to social media and a suspect was identified by investigators. Additional follow up led to the identity of two other suspects being established.

On Monday, October 3, 2016, investigators arrested 34 year old Joshua L. Coleman, of Girard, Kansas, and on Tuesday, October 4, 2016, investigators arrested 20 year old Damian A. Capps, of Pittsburg. The third suspect, 28 year old Gary M. Roberts, of Franklin, Kansas, had already been arrested on an unrelated warrant and is currently being held in the jail at the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office.

Additional follow up into this incident showed these suspects had also broken into at least four motor vehicles on that same date (September 25th) on S. Pine St., W. Quincy St., E. Quincy St. and E. Jackson St., Pittsburg.

Coleman, Capps and Roberts are being charged with one count of burglary to a business, four counts of burglary to a motor vehicle, five counts of theft and one count of criminal damage. All three are being held in lieu of a $5,000.00 bond each.
