In a statement released to the Rolla Daily News on Wednesday, the Rolla Police Department acknowledged that it had succeeded in identifying two suspects in connection with the April 15 burglary of A Slice of Pie, a local business in Rolla.


The names of the two suspects, 18-and-21-year-old females, both of Rolla, have not been released, however, both suspects already were identified, located, interviewed, but later released by police shortly after the burglary happened.


“We are not releasing names at this time, because formal charges haven’t been filed,” Detective Sgt. Ken Nakanishi said.


Charges of second-degree burglary, stealing and first-degree property damage may be levied against the pair of females.


When the burglary occurred, a little over a week ago, RPD officers responded to a call from a citizen in the early morning hours who reported that the front, glass door of A Slice of Pie had been shattered.


With information provided by the owners of the business, it was determined that money, checks and keys were taken, and, as of Wednesday, only the checks had been recovered.  Total losses, including repairs to the business, was estimated at $2,000.


The initial investigation of the crime revealed “several items of evidentiary value at the scene of the crime” had been found by the police.
