Search Warrant Ends Alleged Burglary Ring
Two truckloads of stolen property were uncovered in southern Scotland County when area law enforcement officers executed a search warrant on Friday, June 22nd at the Marilyn Jenkins residence.
Officers from the Scotland County and Knox County sheriff’s departments were joined by the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the North Missouri Drug Task Force at the property located on County Road 255, just off Route W. Officers entered the property at 12:10 p.m.
The search stemmed from information pertaining to numerous burglaries that had occurred in Knox County.
Randall Perkins, 28, and Crystal Jenkins, 17, were arrested at the scene and charged with theft. They will also face possession of stolen property charges in Scotland County.
Officers recovered six saddles and numerous other related items of horse tack along with tools and other possessions allegedly stolen from the Rutledge Flea Market and from numerous out buildings in rural Knox and Adair County.
The Scotland County Sheriff’s Department recovered one saddle, a 12-volt electric fencer and numerous horse bridles, bits and lead ropes that currently are unidentified. Property owners that believe they may have been a victim of this alleged crime wave are asked to contact the sheriff’s department if they can identify any of the missing items.
Jenkins is being held in the Clark County Jail on a $7,500 cash only bond on the theft charges. Perkins is being held without bail on a probation/parole warrant.
