Lakeside Convenience Burglary Connected To High-speed Chase

The Mitchell County Sheriff’s department has confirmed to KDNS News that the convenience store burglarized was Lakeside Convenience just west of Glen Elder.

A 37 year old Marysville man was arrested in Nebraska following a high-speed chase that started in Mitchell County.

Authorities in Nebraska are saying that Justin T. Sutterlin is a suspect in Kansas for the convenience store burglary that took place in Mitchell County early Tuesday.

Tim and Laura Benoit own Lakeside Convenience and Laura tells KDNS news what her first reaction was when she arrived at the store.

Benoit says customers were affected by the burglary and she doesn’t know what the suspect was thinking.

Fairbury, Nebraska Police notified Benoit that numerous items were recovered from the vehicle that are believed to have come from the burglary at Lakeside Convenience.

Benoit says that includes the money taken.

Fairbury, Nebraska police arrested Sutterlin on suspicion of burglary and other charges after the high-speed chase. He is being held in Jefferson County, Nebraska jail on felony warrants from Marshall County in Kansas.

Deputies in Jefferson County spotted Sutterlin in a silver Monte Carlo after being alerted by another county sheriff’s department. Police tried to deploy tire deflation systems but were unsuccessful.

The vehicle sped east on Nebraska 8 at more than 100 mph, then turned north on Nebraska 15.

A Fairbury Police Department officer and a Nebraska State Patrol trooper put out spikes to pop the tires, and Sutterlin stopped, jumped out and ran. Officers caught and arrested him after using a Taser when he resisted arrest.

Sutterlin was not armed and no weapons were found in the vehicle according to the Jefferson County, Nebraska sheriff’s office. A female passenger was detained but later released.
