Columbia Police stop burglary in progress, make arrests

Two white males in 20s arrested inside Burkesville Street home. Police warn residents that several burglaries remain unsolved, issue tips for prevention of thefts from homes and vehicles and, in some cases vehicles themselves.
Note: An individual charged by police or in a warrant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at some later criminal proceeding.

By Ofc. Josh Brockman Public Information Officer
Columbia Police Department, Chief Jason Cross

On January 18, 2017, Columbia Police Department received a complaint from Adair County 911 of a residential break in the 500 block of Burkesville Street. CPD Sgt. Gary Roy and Ofc. Charles Greer found, upon arrival, that the front window was broken out.

Officers observed two white males in the residence and were able to make entry into the residence and take them into custody. Arrested was :

  • Aaron Garsee, age 27 of Columbia, KY - Criminal Mischief 3rd Degree and Burglary 2nd degree

  • Cody Morrison age 21 of Columbia, KY - Criminal Mischief 3rd Degree and Burglary 2nd Degree

CPD ask residents to lock up doors when away

Columbia Police would like to remind everyone to lock the doors to their house and vehicles when not in them. We have been experiencing a high volume of thefts especially in the residential neighborhoods inside the city limits.BR>
Multiple vehicles have been broken into and items such as purses, electronics, sunglasses, money, and in several cases, the vehicles themselves have been taken.

Most of these break-ins have involved no forced entry, the perpetrator or perpetrators simply opened the door.

Although several of these cases have resulted in the arrest of the perpetrators, a few break-ins remain unsolved.

We ask that you remain observant to your surroundings.

Watch your neighbors property and ask them to watch yours.

If you see anything that looks suspicious, call 911 and ask for an officer to be sent to your location to check it.
