Authorities in Fremont County report the arrest Monday morning of a fourth person suspected in the April 18th burglary of an unoccupied residence near Thurman. Sheriff Kevin Aistrope says Douglas Myers was arrested without incident in a Casey’s General Store parking lot in Tabor, after officials received a tip the man was in a U-Haul truck in that area.

Myers was charged with Burglary in the 3rd, and Theft in the 3rd, degrees. He was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of Methamphetamine.

Authorities allege Myers, along with 48-year old Tammy Larae Rose and 49-year old Kenneth Lee Milenkovich, both of Council Bluffs, took miscellaneous household items, a fuse box and wiring from a home in the Thurman area on April 18th. 54-year old Lucy Merie Uriel, of Omaha, was charged with conspiracy in connection with the incident. Sheriff Aistrope says the other individuals were arrested at the scene of the crime, but Myers took off on foot. A warrant was later issued for his arrest.

Rose, Milenkovich and Uriel were being held on bonds ranging from $5,000 to $50,000, in the Fremont County Jail. Their preliminary hearings were set for 1:30-p.m. Thursday in Fremont County District Court.
