Police say a pawn shop helped put three burglary suspects behind bars. This comes after $15,000 worth of items were taken from a Lincoln home.

Police responded to the 7100 block of Fairfax at about 3:45 a.m. June 16th. The victim saw a dark colored car leaving the area and discovered a window broken out of his house.

Police say items such as electronics, jewelry and gaming systems were all stolen.

Lucky for police, the burglar slipped up.

"During the investigation, officers checked pawns and discovered two pieces of jewelry matching what was taken were pawned by Mary Turner," said Officer. Katie Flood.

On Sunday, Police served a search warrant at Turner's home, 1412 North 45th Street, Apartment 2, and found a number of stolen items. They arrested Turner and Ross Scott for burglary.

Later that night, in an attempt to locate more stolen items, police served a second search warrant at Jamie Tuggles' home at 3045 Touzalin Avenue. Police found two stolen laptops and 40 grams of meth.

Tuggle was taken to jail for theft by receiving stolen property and possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.
