LANSING — Police have arrested two people in connection with several burglaries in the village in November and December, officials said.

Dashelle Dodson, 23, was arrested Tuesday morning at a home in the 1000 block of State Line Road in Calumet City, Lansing police said. 

Clyde Butler, 20, of Chicago, was arrested Wednesday at the Cook County Courthouse in Chicago while attending to another criminal case, police said.

Investigators initially identified Dodson as a suspect after she used credit cars stolen in one of the burglaries at local businesses, police said.

Police obtained a search warrant for her home in the 1000 block of State Line Road, which was associated with Dodson. She was not at the home early Tuesday, when police executed the warrant, police said.

Officers found proceeds from multiple burglaries, suspected cannabis and a loaded pistol inside the home, police said. A male resident was taken into custody pending further investigation.

Dodson was arrested later Tuesday upon her return home, police said. She admitted to her involvement in the burglaries, use of stolen credit cards, ownership of the pistol and possession of the cannabis found during the search, police said.

The male resident was released without charges, police said.

Bulter also admitted to his role in the burglaries, police said. Additional proceeds from the burglaries were recovered and returned to the owners.

Dodson and Bulter were charged with multiple counts of burglary. Dodson faces an additional weapons offense charge. Their initial court appearance was set for Thursday, police said.
