UPDATE: Suspect Charged In Alcova Cabin Burglaries
A 17-year-old boy was charged as an adult for a burglary at one of 24 cabins at Alcova Lake last weekend.
Chris Wallace heard the single count of burglary, a felony, during his initial appearance in Natrona county Circuit Court on Wednesday.
Assistant District Attorney Jennifer Reece told Judge Steve Brown that the single charge of burglarizing a cabin on Pelican Ridge is on a criminal information document, but other burglary charges are pending because the investigation continues.
One of the pending charges could be for aggravated robbery because firearms were taken from one cabin, Reece said.
The damage estimate so far is between $20,000 and $28,000, she said.
Wallace, who appeared with his father in court, has been a runaway since May, Reece said.
That, coupled with him being a high school dropout and being unemployed, puts him at a risk of not appearing in court, so Reece recommended the judge set a $20,000 cash or surety bond for him.
Brown agreed. Wallace will be scheduled for a preliminary hearing within several weeks to determine whether his case should be bound over for trial.
Authorities now are looking for another suspect, Natrona County Sheriff's Deputy Sgt. Aaron Shatto said Wednesday.
Adrian “Joseph” Sixfeathers also is wanted for questioning, Shatto said in a press release.
Sixfeathers may possibly be armed with a weapon, and the Sheriff's Office asks the public not to approach him, he said.
The case started when the Sheriff's Office received a report of a burglary of a cabin on Pelican Ridge at the lake on Saturday.
Since the initial report, the office received reports of 23 burglarized cabins on Pelican Ridge, Rocky Shore and Jakes Run.
One renter reported a loss of $4,400 for the theft of a wide-screen television, a generator, antique weapons and damage to the entrance.
Shatto said some of the stolen items have been recovered.
He urges anyone who has any information about the burglaries to call central dispatch at 235-8278.
