Three people were arrested Wednesday in Warsaw in connection with burglaries and thefts at several businesses.

Warsaw officers and the Indiana Department of Child Services went to the Economy Inn in Warsaw 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 for their arrests, and police reported 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 investigation also led to Rodney Holloway, 30, also of Warsaw.

Detectives said the investigation solved a burglary at Pizza King West, as well as break-ins at a laundry and convenience store in Oswego. Attempted burglaries at Little Hawk's Knives and Collectibles and the South Buffalo Street Laundromat were also linked to the three, police said.

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.

Postal inspectors also questioned the three regarding mail stolen from the Chapman Lake and Lincoln Park areas in November, 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 without bond.

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