Attempted farm store break-in lands charges for one

(KAIR)--An alleged, attempted burglary at an Atchison farm and home store leads to a search, and to the arrest of an Atchison man in connection with the attempted crime.

According to a release from Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson, his office was notified of the crime around 3:20 Monday morning, with officers responding to a burglary alarm at Bomgaars, located at 605 South 10th Street.

Wilson says when they arrived, the officers "spotted a subject run from the scene into a nearby wooded area." They pursued, and located him hiding in the woods, with the suspect, identified as 37-year-old Joshua Spurlock, taken into custody for attempted burglary and criminal damage to property, as well as interference with law enforcement, due to his alleged attempt to flee and for allegedly giving officers a false name.

Following his arrest, Spurlock was booked into the Atchison County Jail.

Wilson, in the release, says the investigation into the attempted burglary determined that the attempt had been made at the store's front door.
