Two Laurel County men pleaded not guilty to burglary and theft charges in Laurel District Court Wednesday for allegedly taking electronic items from the Adult Learning Center on the Bennett Center Campus.

Jessie J. Schweitzer, 21, and Robert L. Collins, 19, are charged with third-degree burglary and theft by unlawful taking over $300. They were arrested by London Police Officer Mike Holliday.

An arrest warrant had been issued for the two men by London Police Detective Sgt. Russell Baker alleging the two men broke into the learning center Dec. 2 and took a laptop computer and a television.

Police recovered the items Dec. 12, which were sold separately to other individuals. Baker said in the warrant that Collins sold the laptop for $450.

“He advised her (the person who purchased the laptop) he needed the money and the item was not stolen,” Baker said.

Baker said the two men sold the television for $275.

“They told (him) that they were selling it for Schweitzer’s mother,” Baker said.

Baker said the two men are suspects in other thefts.
