Burglary charged in Syracuse against wind-chime wielding man

NEBRASKA CITY -  A 29-year-old Lincoln man is charged with burglary, theft and criminal mischief after incidents in Syracuse on July 14.

An arrest affidavit naming Preston Hutchinson says a sheriff’s deputy was dispatched to a Walnut Street residence, where witnesses say Hutchinson broke wind chimes and began swing the chimes like a sword.

An arrest affidavit says the deputy made contact with Hutchinson and then went to talk with the resident. He was dispatched that Hutchinson had entered a Sixth Street residence. The deputy told the court he saw Hutchinson with a backpack that belonged in the residence.
