Police in Clarinda arrested two teens early this (Monday) morning, on burglary charges. Police Chief Keith Brothers reports that oat around 4:20-a.m. officers interrupted a burglary in progress at J Bruner’s Restaurant, located at 1100 E. Washington Street, in Clarinda. While conducting routine patrol officers observed a window that had been pried open on the west side of the restaurant and heard noises coming from inside the business. Officers investigated and apprehended two males inside the restaurant. 18-year old Kyle S. Adams, of Westboro, Missouri and a 17-year old male juvenile from Clarinda, were charged with burglary in the third degree, possession of burglary tools, trespass, theft in the fifth degree and criminal mischief in the fifth degree.  

Adams was being held in the Page County Jail on $5,000 bond, while the 17-year old male was released to the custody of his parent, pending action by the Page County Juvenile Court.  Chief Brothers said ironically, Adams is a former intern of the Clarinda Police Department, having interned at the department during his senior year at ClarindaHigh School. 

The Clarinda Police Department was assisted by the Page County Sheriff’s Department with the apprehension and arrest of Adams and the 17-year old.
