Man Possibly Connected To 30 Burglaries In Sioux Falls


A Sioux Falls man is in custody and charged in a weekend business break-in, but police believe he may be responsible for approximately 30 other business burglaries in the past few months.

Information Officer Sam Clemens says a burglary at Zoup, at 2802 West 41st Street, was reported around 9:50pm Friday, but he says detectives had developed a person as a suspect in a series of break-ins in the southwest part of the city, so they were in the area.

Clemens says 51-year-old Richard James Kyles was arrested for third-degree burglary, possession of a controlled substance and maintaining a place where drugs are used, after a search of his home turned up 29 bags with cocaine residue as well as a sharpened tire iron that’s believed to have been used to pry doors open.

He says police believe Kyles is responsible for burglaries at around 30 other businesses in the southwest part of the city, all of which involved doors being pried open and cash taken.
