Police Chief Wes Jordan told the city council at their meeting March 21 that a man the department had connected to burglaries in Prairie Village had been arrested in Jackson County. Though Jordan couldn’t release details about the man, he said the department would be filing charges against him with the District Attorney, and felt he may have accomplices they were hoping to identify and apprehend as well.
