News Release for Jan. 28-Feb. 4, 2014

 

St. Clair County Sheriff Office deputies handled a variety of calls during the week of Jan. 28-Feb. 4.  Sheriff Scott Keeler reported deputies are currently investigating burglaries and a theft in Appleton City. He noted deputies recovered a stolen vehicle issued a summons for assault and made four warrant arrests during the week.

Suspect sought for theft and burglaries in Appleton City

On Sunday, Feb. 2, at 5:20 a.m. a deputy was dispatched to the Linda Buckley residence on South Beech Street, Appleton City, in reference to a theft. Buckley reported two bottles of prescription drugs were missing from her purse. Buckley said the bottles contained a month’s supply of Oxycontin and Xanax. A bank card and some cash was also reported missing. A suspect was identified and a request for prosecution was signed.

At 1:30 p.m. the same day, a deputy responded to Brittany Turner’s residence on East Third Street, Appleton City, in reference to a burglary. Turner advised she received a phone call stating a female was seen in her shed going through items and stacking them by the door. Turner stated when she arrived at her the residence the female was gone and the shed doors were open.

A pile of Turner’s items from the shed was located by the door along with a bag full of clothes and other items that did not belong to her. A prescription for Oxycontin with Buckley’s name on it was located inside the bag. The bag also contained an eyeglass case with credit cards and insurance cards belonging to Buckley. Other items found included several DVDs and a cell phone. The investigation revealed the cell phone belonged to Lyle Roland, West Third Street.

Contact was made with Roland who stated he returned from the store and found a female in his house. She was described as being five-foot nine-inches tall, mid 20s and slender with long dark hair in a pony tail. The female was wearing black pants, a grey hoodie and house slippers. He said when she left he could not find his phone to call the police. Lyle identified the cell phone and several of the DVDs found as what he was missing from his residence. A search of the area was conducted and the suspect was not located.

Sheriff Keeler urges those with any information on the whereabouts of the female suspect to contact the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office, 417-646-2565, or email to tips@scsomo.org.
