Five people were indicted in Kenai Superior Court last Friday in connection with a Kenai residential burglary investigation. Two of the five are being held at the Wildwood Pretrial Facility.
The two in custody, Samuel Stroer, 32, and Jennifer Nichols, 29, both of Soldotna, were arrested March 4 when Kenai and Soldotna police and Alaska State Troopers searched three residences in Sterling and Soldotna and recovered items taken in the Feb. 24 burglary.
Stroer and Nichols were indicted on one count each of second-degree theft, a Class C felony.
Three other suspects, Job Sallison, 19, Jordan C. Fischer, 19, and Lorence M. Dobson, 40, are at large, according to Kenai Police Chief Chuck Kopp.
Sallison and Fischer were indicted on one count of first-degree burglary, one count of second-degree theft, one count of first-degree vehicle theft and one count of third-degree criminal mischief.
A 1998 Chevy Z71 pickup was reported stolen from the site of the burglary. The truck was recovered and was extensively damaged, Kopp said.
Also named in the indictment is Dobson, who is charged with one count of second-degree theft and two counts of fourth-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance.
Police and troopers searched Soldotna residences at 45020 Central Avenue and 385 Riverview Drive and a Sterling residence at 38410 Cedarwood and recovered electronics equipment, furniture, jewelry, china and collectible coins and currency, reported stolen in the Kenai burglary.
In addition, police recovered a .44-caliber Magnum gun reported stolen in a burglary 10 years ago and a large quantity of marijuana.
