The Verona Police Department have arrested two residents in conjunction with a string of car burglaries in town.
According to the police, early on last Wednesday morning, September 23, a resident contacted police after observing two suspicious individuals outside his home. Lieutenant Depoe, and Officers Huber and Kirby were dispatched to the area and located 20-year-old Verona resident Robert Hildebrandt. The police say that after speaking with Hildebrandt, they determined that he and 22-year-old Verona resident Carlos Joshua Bravo were entering unlocked vehicles and removing personal items. The police say that a total of six vehicles had been entered in the area of Laning Avenue School.
Hildebrandt and Bravo were each charged with three counts of burglary, three counts of theft, three counts of receiving stolen property and conspiracy. Both were released from Verona Police headquarters. The men are presumed innocent unless or until they plead guilty or are found guilty in a court of law.
The police are once again reminding residents to lock their vehicles.
