Police: Boy stole truck, then burglarized bait shop

More arrests are pending

DIXON – A 17-year-old Dixon boy was arrested early Friday on charges of burglary and possession of a stolen vehicle.

According to police, officers were called to Bunny’s Bait Shop, 1024 E. River Road, at 4 a.m. after a report of a burglary in process.

Lt. Brad Sibley said that when police arrived, they found the young man inside and asked that he come out of the building, at which point he ran. Police caught him a short time later, Sibley said.

Later in the morning, two Dixon Park District trucks were reported missing from their maintenance building; one of the trucks was found parked across the street from the bait shop, Sibley said.

Police discovered that tools from the park district truck had been used to gain access to the bait shop, which is how the two incidents were linked, Sibley said.

Sibley said the second truck was found near Auction City on the west end of town.

More arrests are pending, he said.
