(KNZA)--A Sabetha man has been arrested and charged in connection with two recent burglaries at a Sabetha business.

Sabetha Police Chief Robert Wahwasuck said 41-year-old Casey Swogar was arrested Wednesday after the Sabetha Police Department, along with the Nemaha County Sheriff's Office and the Kansas Highway Patrol, executed two search warrants. Swogar was taken into custody without incident.

He is accused of breaking into Hack's Meat Shack during the early morning hours of February 23 and 24th. Stolen were two pistols, cash and other items. Images of the suspect were captured on surveillance cameras.

Nemaha County Attorney Brad Lippert filed a seven-count criminal complaint Thursday in Nemaha County District Court charging Swogar with two felony counts of burglary, two felony counts of theft of a firearm, along with one count each of felony theft, misdemeanor theft and misdemeanor criminal damage to property.

Swoger remains held in the Nemaha County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
