Law enforcement arrested a man on suspicion of throwing rocks at windows of the Gage County Detention Center in attempt to get the attention of his ex-girlfriend, who is an inmate.
Kaleb E. Robinson, 26, was arrested shortly before 10 p.m. Friday.
According to Gage County Court documents, deputies responded to the north side of the Gage County Detention Center for reports of shots possibly fired at the building. The suspect was described as a white male in an orange shirt and shorts.
Upon arrival, three windows on the north side of the building appeared damaged by objects hitting them. A search was conducted and the suspect was not found.
Deputies reviewed surveillance footage, which revealed two males running from the east side of the Buss Stop gas station. One of the males crossed Sixth Street, while the other entered the alley directly behind the detention center, picked up rocks and could be seen throwing them at the building on numerous occasions.
At around 9:45 p.m., a Beatrice Police officer advised he found two males matching the descriptions from the video in the Burger King parking lot near the jail.
Robinson allegedly admitted he was the one throwing rocks at the jail, stating his ex-girlfriend was incarcerated in the jail and was throwing rocks at the building to get her attention. Documents state he advised authorities he “knew it was stupid” and was a last second decision.
Each of the three windows cost $1,500 when initially installed.
Robinson faces charges of criminal mischief and loitering about a penal institution. His bond was set at $7,500 with a 10 percent deposit in Court Monday morning.
