Deputies Say Two Responsible For 50 Break-Ins

After several months of break-ins and tens of thousands of dollars in goods stolen, deputies say they have the two people responsible in custody.

"They have indicated to us that they were involved in over 50 home invasions in the past seven months in five counties," said Detective Sergeant Fritz Sandberg of the Clinton County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities say Adam Kaser and Jynell Veverka-Dyer's crime wave began months ago. Investigators say the two suspects took money and jewelry from homes and businesses across Mid-Michigan.

Brad, who didn't want us to use his last name, says his home was robbed last week and didn't know it until his wife discovered some items missing and damage to a bedroom window.

"A couple pieces of jewelry, a jar of change, a small TV," he said. "It's very surprising, the magnitude, that they were involved in so many of them."

Clinton County Detectives grew suspicious when the crime scenes were similar. That's when they involved Ingham County, who tracked the suspects to Mason and then to Livingston County.

"We were able to get some surveillance on the suspects," said Ingham COunty Sheriff Gene Wriggelsworth. "We got them stopped and arrested. We caught them with some goods on them."

Authorities believe the two may be connected to other crimes in the area. Though they cannot confirm if they stole Jynell's mother's sloth, a story we brought you last month.

Judy Veverka-Dyer says her daughter fell into the wrong crowd and blames kaser for influencing her daughter. The two suspects are being held in the Livingston County jail on charges of felony safe-breaking.

Kaser's bond is $100,000. Veverka-Dyer's is $25,000.

    I knew her for awhile she was a great artist and thoughtful person. I thought she was hanging out with a not so great crowd but never believed she would do something like that. I hope she can turn things around.

    I grew up next door to Jynell. I agree with her mother completely. I was floored when I first heard the story on the radio while driving home from work. Jynell loved animals and nature. Jynells family is wonderful, great parents and two older sisters I also was friends with.

    I was pretty shocked when I read this. I'm good friend's with Jynell's older sister and hung out around Jynell while she was in her teens. She was a nice girl then. She does need to be held responsible for what she did, but at the same time I hope she can turn her life around. My thoughts and prayers are with her, her family and those who got robbed.

    That is such a kindler, gentler story, compared to the Matthew Macon trail, sounds like these two will be able to get a fair trial. Only in America!
