Six people have been arrested for their involvement in the alleged theft of $40 worth of cigarettes from a Mitchell business earlier this week.

On Thursday and Friday, the Mitchell Police Division arrested six individuals regarding a burglary that took place Tuesday at Casey's General Store, located at the intersection of North Main Street and Seventh Avenue.

A 16-year-old male was taken into custody for third-degree burglary and a 17-year-old male was arrested for aiding, abetting or advising a third-degree burglary, according to press release sent by the police division Friday.

The 16-year-old male allegedly broke a window in the building, entered the building and stole several packs of cigarettes while the 17-year-old acted as a lookout, according to the Mitchell Department of Public Safety.

The cigarettes were valued at $38.70, and the business sustained approximately $230 in damage.

In addition to the two juveniles, 18-year-old Nicole Salway, 18-year-old Isaiah Young, 30-year-old Michelle Lynn Antoine and 27-year-old Allen Jess Lee Kilgore were arrested for their alleged involvement in the incident. All involved live in Mitchell, according to the Department of Public Safety.

Salway was arrested for aiding and abetting third-degree burglary after allegedly advising the juveniles how to commit the crime. The news release also states that Salway told the juveniles where to find an object that was later used to break into the business.

Young was arrested as an accessory to a third-degree burglary. The release states that after becoming aware of the burglary investigation, Young allegedly hid the evidence in a wooded area from police. The items were later recovered by police.

Antoine was arrested for misprision of a felony, according to the Department of Public Safety. After allegedly having knowledge of who committed the burglary, Antoine did not immediately report the information to law enforcement.

Kilgore was arrested for possession of stolen property and misprision of a felony. Kilgore is also believed to having had knowledge of who committed the burglary and where some of the stolen property was located, according to the news release, but he did not immediately report it to law enforcement. When questioned by authorities, Kilgore was in possession of one pack of cigarettes that was allegedly stolen in the burglary, the release states, and allegedly knew the cigarettes were stolen.

A tip from a Mitchell Area Crime Stoppers caller led to these arrests.
