SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Springfield Police took someone into custody for trespassing Thursday afternoon after an hours-long investigation.
Police were called to the Iceman Jewelers building on South Glenstone Avenue near Seminole Street, where they believed an intruder was hiding in the basement.
The business is closed, the owner told Ozarksfirst that he retired several months ago and the business was closed. We are working to find out whether there was jewelry in the building.
Police said someone was taken into custody just after noon on Thursday after an encounter with a K9 officer.
Bystanders said the man who was detained had said he was looking for a place to sleep in the basement.
Thursday afternoon’s incident was the second break-in at the building in 12 hours.
