Probation violation leads to clues in last week's burglaries

Posted:

What began as an apprehension order could lead to answers about burglaries that were committed last week.  

On Friday, Police say they moved in to arrest 18-year-old Souleysi Singharath of Rochester for violating his probation. 

After his mother let them into the house at the 5700 block of Conway Court Northwest, officers found Singharath sleeping on top of a 9 millimeter pistol. 

As a convicted felon, he is not permitted to possess a firearm. Officers also found controlled substances during their search. 

Police then returned to the home with a search warrant, and found items related to the burglaries that happened within walking distance of where Singharath was staying.

The three separate break-ins took place sometime during the day on Wednesday last week.

The burglaries included a home in the 5900 block of 24th avenue northwest, where a woman reported jewelry, cash, and a computer missing.

Police are also investigating another break-in on the 55-hundred block of 25th Avenue Northwest.

This homeowner reported glass smashed on the patio door, and a missing video game console. 

A tablet was also reported stolen from another man's home in the 300 block of 6th street Northwest.  

Singharath's arraignment took place this morning, and he is expected to face additional charges as the investigation continues.
