25-year-old man breaks into apartment to steal BB gun

A 25-year-old man was arrested Saturday for breaking into an apartment to steal a BB gun.

Robert Burton-Collins was arrested for burglary after officers responded to a call from a female complainant at 2446 S. Henderson St., said Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Brandon Siniard.

The woman told police Burton-Collins had entered her home while she wasn’t there and took a BB gun. No other items were reported stolen.

The woman identified Burton-Collins as the one who entered her apartment and told police a  third party informed her that he was bragging about taking the gun. The woman and Burton-Collins knew each other, Siniard said.

As police were leaving the scene, another person arrived with the BB gun. Police later made contact with Burton-Collins and arrested him on one count of burglary. He did not tell police why he stole the gun.
