Local man charged in burglary
On March 16 just before 6 a.m., LPD Field Training Officer Carl Boatwright, Reserve Officer Larry Wilson and Assistant Chief of Police Sammy Bailey were dispatched to 401 E. Sixth St., the site of Ron Ischy Masonry, to investigate a burglary.
Officials discovered more than $10,000 in computer equipment, masonry tools and building tools had been taken from the business.
On April 5, Sgt. Investigator Charlie Boswell and Ms. Bailey recovered a large amount of the stolen property from a North Austin pawn shop.
During the follow-up investigation by Boswell and Ms. Bailey, an arrest warrant for burglary of a building was obtained for Richard Cody Callicotte II.
Callicotte was served the warrant by LPD Corp. Fidel Morua at the Lampasas County Jail, where Callicotte had been arrested previously on a parole violation warrant.
Future arrests are anticipated in the burglary case, said Ms. Bailey.
Some of the items still not recovered include a computer, printer, gasolinepowered saw, and miscellaneous masonry and building tools.
Callicotte, who was arrested March 30 on a parole violation warrant, remains in the Lampasas County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
