ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Charges have been filed in connection with a string of burglaries in rural Jefferson County.
“In late October through December we began having burglaries in the Raintree Plantation Subdivision,” Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department Captain Ron Arnhart said. “As we began the investigation of the first several burglaries, we were able to tie the other burglaries together.”
Arnhart said a total of nine burglaries were reported, believed to have been orchestrated by four men in their early 20s and a teenaged girl.
“Yes, they are quite young.”
Arnhart said the five are believed to have pawned the stolen items or traded them for drugs.
Kaleb P. Jarnagin, 22, of Festus has been charged with three counts of burglary; Colin P. Bell, 21, of Hillsboro has been charged with four counts of burglary; Dylan G. Toler has been charged with one count of burglary; Charles A. Jarzenbeck, 20, has been charged with one count of burglary and one count of stealing; and Jamie Ashabranner, 17, has been charged with one count of burglary.
Bonds for the five suspects range from $30,000 to $5,000.
