COLORADO SPRINGS — Several people have been arrested after police say they stole several thousand dollars’ worth of property at a local public storage unit.
Beginning in mid-March, the Sand Creek Investigations Division began investigating a storage unit burglary that occurred at the Public Storage located at 2790 Janitell Road. During the burglary, police say three people broke into a storage unit and stole several thousand dollars’ worth of the victim’s property to include several guns.
Detectives were able to identify the burglars as Gregory Donally, 32, Kayla Reilly, 29, and Jesus Perez, 31.
Donally and Reilly arrested
On April 5, 2022, Detective Felice of the Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) Fugitive Task Force located Donally and Reilly at a house in the 2700 block Fredericksburg Drive. The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office (EPSO) SWAT team also responded to help arrest Donally and Reilly based on the weapons that were stolen from the storage unit.
Donally and Reilly were taken into custody without incident and booked into the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center. According to police, when officers and deputies searched the house, they found property that directly linked Donally and Reilly to the burglary at 2790 Janitell Road.
