HANFORD — On Thursday, the Kings County Sheriff's Office arrested two people they believe burglarized a Kings County home multiple times, officials said.
Deputies said the first incident occurred on or around Feb. 14 when a house in the 12200 block of Douglas Avenue was burglarized and a washer dryer set was stolen, along with a gate remote control.
They said the house is listed for sale and the property caretaker was not home at the time.
Sheriff’s officials said they believe the same suspects then came back on Wednesday and were in the process of burglarizing the home again when the caretaker arrived at the house.
Although the caretaker arrived during the burglary, deputies said they did not see the suspects, who fled the scene on foot and left their vehicle behind.
Inside of the vehicle, deputies said they located a purse with an ID inside of it that belonged to 31-year-old Jennifer Crow. Deputies said they located Crow on Thursday afternoon and questioned her about the burglaries.
Sheriff’s officials said Crow admitted to being present during the burglaries and even told deputies that she and her accomplice, 36-year-old Jeremy Koelewyn, made a total of three trips to the house.
Later that afternoon, authorities said Koelewyn was arrested for his part in the crimes as well, along with four outstanding warrants.
Deputies were also able to recover the stolen washer and dryer and return them to the property owner.
