The Warsaw Police Department has made arrests in several burglaries and thefts.

Warsaw officers and the Indiana Department of Child Services went to the Economy Inn in Warsaw on Wednesday afternoon and removed young children from one of the rooms.

Their mother, Janelle Hall, 23, and her brother, Nicholas Hall, 22, both of Warsaw, had warrants out of the county, and police report finding synthetic marijuana, also known as "spice," drug paraphernalia and a flat-screen television that had been reported stolen in a burglary on West Winona Avenue.

The police said the investigation led to 30-year-old Rodney Holloway, also of Warsaw.

Detectives said the probe solved a burglary at Pizza King West, as well as break-ins at the Laundromat and convenience store in Oswego.

The police said attempted burglaries at Little Hawk's Knives and Collectibles and the South Buffalo Street Laundromat were also linked to the suspects.

Nicholas Hall and Holloway are also accused of breaking into the abandoned, burned out Cigarettes Plus on North Lake Street and taking copper to sell as scrap.

. United States Postal Inspectors also questioned the three regarding mail stolen from the Chapman Lake and Lincoln Park areas last November, the Warsaw police said.

Nicholas Hall and Holloway were charged with residential burglary, burglary to a business and two counts each of theft. They were being held at the Kosciusko County Jail with no bond.

Janelle Hall was charged with felony theft and receiving stolen property. She was being held on a $2,000 surety bond.
