Daily News

For the second time in four months, the Sudsy Dudsy Laundromat in Palestine had surveillance equipment damaged by intruders.

Police Chief Jeff Besing said about 12:18 a.m. Monday three male suspects, appeared at the laundromat and Brock's Storage Units at 107 E. Harrison.

Two entered the laundromat and damaged two surveillance cameras inside while a third suspect waited outside.

The investigation revealed that a camera on the back of the storage building was also damaged, as well as two windows on the northwest side.

A storage unit window was damaged, allowing entry into the unit.

As a result of the investigation Keondre M. Weck, 18, Robinson, was arrested on charges of two counts of burglary and two counts of criminal damage to property, both felonies.

Keagan B. Pittenger, 18, Palestine, was also charged with two felony charges of accountability to burglary, two felony counts of accountability to criminal damage to property and one felony count of obstructing justice.

Additional paperwork will be filed with the State's Attorney seeking a juvenile petition for similar charges against a 16 year old male who was also involved in this incident.

Besing acknowledged the individuals who helped with the investigation and bringing the suspects to justice.

"I would like to express my appreciation to all the individuals who provided me with tips concerning the identities of the suspects involved in this incident," Besing said. "Thank you for helping your community by saying something."

Last November surveillance equipment at Sudsy Dudsy, including cameras, recording devices and a TV monitor were damaged when intruders invaded the building.

Pittenger and Weck are being held in the Crawford County Jail awaiting bond to be set by a judge.
