Fairway police arrest suspected car burglar after string of incidents

David_LordNortheast Johnson County law enforcement officials believe they may have found the culprit behind at least some of a rash of car burglaries in the area.

Westwood Police Chief Greg O’Halloran told the city council Thursday that an arrest made this week may solve some of the burglary cases experienced in the area in recent days. O’Halloran said a report of a break-in early Wednesday morning had officers from Westwood, Roeland Park and Fairway looking for a suspect. Fairway police ended up arresting a David Lee Lord, 27, of Kansas City, Kan., around 5 a.m. Wednesday.

Lord is being held on $10,000 bond at Johnson County Jail in Olathe on charges of burglary of a motor vehicle. He is set to have a preliminary hearing in court April 21.
