Two more arrested in burglary of Frost’s home
Police have arrested two more people in the burglary of Nebraska football coach Scott Frost’s south Lincoln home, according to court records.
Andrew M. Williams, 20, and a 16-year-old Lincoln boy were accused in the burglary following the arrest of a 17-year-old girl investigators believe served as the driver in the burglary.
Investigators had been investigating the girl in a string of other burglaries when they learned of her involvement in the Frost case, according to court documents.
Police believe burglars entered Frost’s home through an unlocked garage door July 27 and stole $50,000 worth of shoes, football helmets and artwork, according to police. Frost initially thought 14 championship rings were taken, but those were later found. No one was home at the time.
Police said some of the shoes were listed for sale online, and tips poured into Facebook and Crimestoppers, Officer Angela Sands said.
Investigators found some of the online listings to be hoaxes, police said.
They found a pair of women’s shoes in the girl’s possession last week, Sands said.
Two days after the burglary, an officer stopped a vehicle Williams was riding in and remembers seeing distinctive green shoes that matched the description of shoes stolen in the Frost burglary, according to an affidavit for his arrest.
The officer arrested Williams on Friday and found the green Nikes and other items believed to have been stolen from Frost’s house in his car, the affidavit said.
Williams was arrested on suspicion of burglary.
The cases against the 16-year-old boy and 17-year-old girl have been referred to the Lancaster County Attorney’s Office for prosecution.
No other arrests are expected.
