WAYNE – Following an arrest to a 38-year old Wayne man and his 28-year old wife in a connection to a resident burglary, several items have been found in Wayne County.
In a press release from the Stanton County Sheriff’s Office Friday morning, there’ve been several occasions of burglary at a rural farm place about 10 miles southeast of Stanton.
Jacob Mahnke faces charges of burglary and being a felon in possession of a firearm. He remains in custody at this time with a scheduled court appearance for next month. Kayla Salmons faces charges of aiding in the consumptions of a felony and aiding and abetting a felon in possession of a firearm.
Both Mahnke and Salmons were arrested earlier this month following an investigation into the burglary by the Sheriff’s office. Assistance was also made possible from the Wayne Police Department and the service of a search warrant by the Sheriff’s office at a rural Stanton residence two weeks ago, where seven stolen firearms and a stolen 4-wheeler were recovered.
Several other stolen items have also been recovered at a Wayne residence.
Stanton County arrest warrants have been issued for two Wayne residents, Benton “Benny” Giffrow, 26, and Sawyer Giffrow, 22, in connection to their alleged involvement in the burglary and being felons in possession of firearms. Photos are listed at the top of this article.
Anyone with knowledge of the Giffrow’s whereabouts is asked to call the Stanton County Sheriff’s office at 402-439-2212 or their local law enforcement agency.
Additional charges and arrests are possible as the investigation continues into the loss of an estimated $20,000 in guns and other personal property taken during the burglary. The residence belonged to a longtime area resident who had recently passed away.
