Two people have been charged in an incident Saturday in which a Goddard police officer fired at a suspicious vehicle at the Hopper storage facility in the 21000 block of West U.S. 54, a Sedgwick County sheriff’s official said Wednesday.

While the suspects were trying to flee, they ran into a patrol car, and a Goddard officer shot at and hit the vehicle, said sheriff’s Capt. Greg Pollock. The Sheriff’s Office is leading the investigation.

Both suspects were taken into custody. One of them, Christy M. Baker, 27, has been charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, multiple counts of criminal damage to property, attempted burglary, fleeing and eluding and drug possession, and Raymond L. Weakly, 51, has been charged with attempted burglary, Pollock said.

Investigators in the case have recovered evidence from three other recent burglaries, Pollock said.

He noted there has been a spike in burglaries at storage facilities.
