Extreme Automotive was burglarized that October night, during which more than $200,000 worth of tools and equipment was stolen.
Also that night, a trailer was stolen from the Pizza Hut parking lot as well as a pickup from Extreme Automotive, both of which were used in the burglary.
York County Attorney Christopher Johnson announced that a suspect, Jonathan Sierra, "has been arrested in connection with the burglary at Extreme Automotive, which occurred on Oct. 15, 2017.
“In addition, an arrest warrant has been issued on a second suspect, Johnathan L. Mally, related to the burglary at Extreme Automotive---that subject is currently being held in the jail in Platte County on unrelated charges, and upon the conclusion of those charges, that subject will face charges in York County.
“Cases have been filed against both individuals, with numerous felony counts alleged against each suspect. The charges reflect not only the burglary at Extreme Automotive, but the theft of items utilized in the burglary, including a pickup truck and an enclosed trailer belonging to other members in the community,” Johnson said.
“These arrests are the product of months of investigation by numerous law enforcement agencies, led by our own York Police Department. The citizens of York, myself included, are lucky to have such a dedicated police force that continues to not only pursue those who commit crimes, but to apprehend the perpetrators of crime within our community.”
At this time, it is unclear the level of felonies both face as this case remains under investigation and the county attorney’s office is considering all facts brought to the office by the investigators.
The county attorney’s office did not specify where the men reside.
York News-Times Editor’s note: More regarding this story will be published as the details become available. The county attorney’s office did not specify where the men reside. He also did not indicate their dates of birth or their criminal records, although prison documents indicate that men with the same name in Nebraska have been incarcerated for a number of crimes, including burglary, sexual assault, possession of methamphetamine, theft and criminal mischief. However, without the specific dates of birth, it is not possible at this time to pinpoint if these are the same people.
