Wedding florist accused of burglary
SIDNEY - The Fremont County Sheriffs’ Office reports the arrest of 40-year-old Jeffrey Brent Vanhouten of Tabor on theft and burglary charges.
Investigators say a Tabor couple contracted with Vanhouten, who owns a floral company, to deliver flowers to a wedding in Omaha. He is accused of returning to Tabor and entering their home without permission during the wedding.
A sheriff’s office press release says Vanhouten is also suspected of entering the Fremont-Mills school in Tabor on a separate occasion, causing damage to items and leaving with unknown items.
The sheriff suspects Vanhouten entered a second Fremont County home in October and was found inside by the resident.
He was held in Sidney on a $32,000 bond.
