LAFAYETTE COUNTY, Mo. — A pair of Camdenton residents are facing felony charges in Lafayette County after an alleged burglary near Odessa Monday.
Probable cause statements filed in a Lafayette County courtroom allege that two subjects, Shannon L. Monahan, 37, and Jonathon Reberry, 34, burgled a property on Old Highway 40 in Odessa late Monday morning.
The owner of the property called authorities reporting a burglary in progress and told dispatch he had blocked the exit with his vehicle, trapping the alleged criminals on his property.
When law enforcement agents arrived at the scene, a number of antique items belonging to the property owner were found in Monahan’s truck bed. The estimated value of the items was in excess of $1,000, according to the probable cause statement.
Officers arrested Reberry at the scene and conducted a short search for Monahan, who Reberry said was not with him on the property, until she was found hiding inside a fallen tree. A search of her person allegedly uncovered meth and drug paraphernalia.
Reberry and Monahan now both face felony charges for second degree burglary, stealing $750 or more and possession of burglary tools. In addition, Monahan faces a single felony for possession of a controlled substance, except 35 grams or less of marijuana and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
Future court dates for the pair are currently pending.
