Topeka Man Accused of Aggravated Burglary

Salina Police wrapped up a nearly two year investigation on Tuesday in to an aggravated burglary.

The incident occurred on October 9, 2015, when Elizabeth Weeks was at her home at 841 1/2 S. 5th St in Salina.

Weeks was with her three-year-old son when a female acquaintance came by to borrow a vacuum.  When the acquaintance left, a man who was with the acquaintance and known by the victim, entered Weeks’ property without her permission.

The man, then 38-year-old Chauntia Benoit of Topeka took a laptop that belonged to Weeks before pulling away in a black SUV. The laptop is valued at $200.

There aren’t details on the arrest, however, Benoit–who is now 39–has been detained and booked on charges that include aggravated burglary and theft.
