February 16th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The Clarinda Police Department reports an arrest has been made in connection with an attempted burglary early this (Thursday) morning. Police Chief Keith Brothers says 30-year old Kyle Bahn, of Clarinda, was charged with Attempted Burglary in the 3rd degree, Possession of burglary tools, Trespassing, and 4th degree Criminal Mischief. His arrest stems from an investigation into an incident which was reported to have occured at around 2-a.m.

Brother says officers responding to a reported burlgary in progress at 300 East Logan Street, discovered entry had been made into the home after an exterior glass door was broken. Following an immediate search of the area, the officers were able to track a set of footprints to the vicinity of 14th & Clark Streets, where they encountered Bahn. The man was detained for questioning and then taken into custody.

Bahn was booked into the Page County Jail, where he was being held on $5,000 bond, pending an appearance before a Magistrate. It’s not clear if Bahn was the same person responsible for two, early morning home invasions that occurred in Clarinda over the past week. Today’s incident remains under investigation.
