Decatur Searching for Robbery and Burglary Suspect


Decatur - Decatur police need your finding a suspect they believe is responsible for recent burglaries.

Police are looking for 25 year-old Richard Behnke.
He's described as a white male 6-feet 1-inch tall, weighing 160 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

Police told WAND News he should be considered armed and dangerous.
Police said they believe Behnke is responsible for a burglary at the Garden Family Restaurant on Pershing Road, and several other burglaries in Decatur.

"In this particular case, in the last week and a half, we've had several businesses burglaries up north that have been broken into, and over the last two to three days we've had several armed robberies.  When we get him, we're hoping that we don't have another individual that starts this, but it wouldn't surprise us," said Decatur Police Chief Todd Walker.

Police Chief Walker also said that's because this time of year the number of burglaries are on the rise.

If you have any information you're encouraged to make an anonymous tip to the Decatur and Macon County Crimestoppers.
