Residents should check their storage units following theft investigation

November 20th, 2018 in Local News

Callaway County law officers are asking residents to check their rented storage units after a months-long investigation of thefts resulted in arrests of three Fulton men.

People who think they have lost items in these break-ins can see recovered items Tuesday at the Fulton Police Department. Representatives from the Fulton Police Department, the Holts Summit Police Department and the Callaway County Sheriff's Office will be available for a public viewing of the recovered property.

Only those whom have made related theft reports to law enforcement will be able to view the property to make claim. Victims should schedule a time with their respective local law enforcement agency before Nov. 27 to view the recovered property. Investigator contacts for each agency involved in this investigation are:

  • Callaway County Sheriff's Office: Lt. Matt Palmer or Lt. Curtis Hall.
  • Fulton Police Department: Lt. Jason Barnes, Detective Brandi Mintle or Detective Crystal Kent.
  • Holts Summit Police Department: Detective Colette Beard.

After checking their units, if property is missing and a report has not been made, people should contact their local law enforcement agency immediately.

Thefts occurred between July 1 and Nov. 14 from storage units in and near Auxvasse, Fulton, New Bloomfield and Holts Summit. Multiple suspects were developed and then arrested.

The arrested men, all from Fulton, include:

  • Morgan R. Patton, 38 — Felony Receiving Stolen Property. Patton later posted a bond of $4,500. (All bond amounts are set by 13th District Court officials.)
  • Lance W. Kemp, 38 second-degree felony burglary and possession of Burglary Tools. Kemp remains in custody of the Callaway County Jail on a bond of $10,000.
  • Chase A. Shaver, 20 — Second-degree felony burglary, possession of burglar tools and resisting arrest for a felony. Shaver remains in custody of the Callaway County Jail on a bond of $15,000.

Further arrests/charges are possible and the investigation continues.
