Break-in At Storage Facility Could Be Part Of A Pattern

Scott Killey

A break-in at the Academy Place Storage facility in Colorado Springs could be related to a pattern of similar crimes, police say.

Scott Killey, 28, was arrested after pulling up to the facility on 2345 Academy Place. Police say the owners were conducting surveillance of the property because of other recent burglaries.

The business saw Killey get out of a car and thought they heard him using bolt cutters on the lock of a storage unit. They called 911 and three minutes later, officers found Killey just a few hundred feet away.

Police say they found damaged locks on the floorboard beneath Killey's feet. He also allegedly admitted some crimes to Police, but specifics of that admission were not available.
