NEW CAMBRIA, Mo. — Two men are in custody related to an armed home invasion in New Cambria.
According to the Macon County Sheriff’s Department, deputies responded to a home invasion in New Cambria January 9th. Deputies said two male suspects forced entry to the home, armed with a handgun and knife.
A female victim reported being held captive by the suspects as they stole a rifle and prescription medication from the home. They then fled the scene after releasing her.
Officials were later able to identify one of the suspects as Wayne M. Baldwin, 34, of Stanbury. Baldwin was taken into custody the following day during a vehicle stop in Clinton County. During the stop, a second suspect identified as Adam T. Justus, fled the vehicle, armed with a handgun.
Deputies said additional evidence found during the vehicle stop led to an arrest warrant for Justus, related to the armed home invasion in New Cambria. Justus was apprehended by officials Monday in DeKalb County.
