On 15 Nov 05 Sgt. Gherke met with Starla L. Burris, age 30, 718 McGill Road, Vincent, at the Sheriff’s Office concerning a domestic dispute with her husband Earl, age 33, that transpired earlier in the evening. Mrs. Burris stated after she explained a homework problem to her stepdaughter her husband asked her to solve several problems to show the teenager how it is done. Mrs. Burris declined, claiming if she solved the problem her stepdaughter would not learn. Angered at this, Mr. Burris slapped his wife and pulled the phone off the wall, causing his wife to be in fear for her safety. Sgt. Gherke traveled to the residence to arrest Mr. Burris for domestic violence, but since Mr. Burris was absent Sgt. Gherke requested a warrant for his arrest.

SUSPECT IN SERIES OF RENO BURGLARIES ARRERSTED

The morning of 15 Nov 05 Deputies and Detectives responded to a burglary in progress at 115 Holiday Drive. One of the home’s occupants informed the responding officers he was awakened by the sound of a dog barking and the odor of cigarette smoke. The subject was then observed by a neighbor fleeing the scene in the direction of Sandhill Road. After recovering the purse and its contents, less the cash inside, Detectives also learned of a burglary at 121 Sanjubar Drive and developed Robert W. Strother, age 26, 26935 State Route 7 Apt. 5B, Marietta, as a suspect.

Detectives obtained and executed a search warrant on Mr. Strother’s residence later in the day and recovered items positively linking him to the burglaries he was suspected of perpetrating this morning. Waiving his Miranda Rights, Mr. Strother admitted to Detectives that he was responsible for the two burglaries on this date, at least two other home invasions as well as a number of incidences when he stole items from unlocked vehicles in the area.

Strother is currently being held at the Washington County Jail pending his initial court appearance on two second degree felony charges of burglary. Evidence of further burglaries and/or thefts committed by Mr. Strother will be forwarded to the Prosecutor’s Office for grand jury consideration.
