AUXVASSE, Mo. — An Auxvasse man was arrested at his home Friday after a burglary investigation, according to Lt. Curtis Hall of the Callaway County Sheriff's Office.
At 7:21 a.m., deputies arrested Devin Montcalm, 22, at a residence in the 200 block of South Elm Street in Auxvasse. Upon attempting to take Montcalm into custody, he resisted arrest, Hall said.
Montcalm is being held in the Callaway County Jail for the following probable cause charges: four counts of felony first-degree burglary, three felony counts of stealing, two felony counts of unlawful possession of a firearm, felony resisting arrest, felony possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor stealing.
He is being held without bond pending a judge's bond setting.
His arrest is the result of a Callaway County Sheriff's Office investigation concerning the burglary of several residences in the Auxvasse and Hatton areas Thursday and Friday. While deputies were searching the area for Montcalm, who had been identified as a suspect, they found his abandoned vehicle on County Road 271. Upon recovering the vehicle, articles of stolen property and narcotics were located. Later, further items of stolen property were located elsewhere in Auxvasse.
The investigation is ongoing and further charges could be forthcoming. The Auxvasse Police Department assisted with the investigation.
