Mississippi County man facing charges from multiple burglaries

A Mississippi County man is facing charges from multiple burglaries.

Sheriff Keith Moore says a man reported that a home he was remodeling had been burglarized and several thousand dollars worth of tools were missing.

42-year-old Jimmy Lee Wilson Junior of East Prairie was identified as a suspect.

Wilson had been arrested earlier as a suspect in another burglary.

The sheriff and deputies conducted a taped interview with Wilson which lead them to believe he had committed the burglary and concealed the stolen tools in various places around the county.

Using that information, deputies were able to recover nearly all the stolen property.

Wilson is charged Burglary in the 2nd Degree and Theft/Stealing of Property valued at more than $500.

These charges are in addition to burglary, stealing, and weapon charges filed following a separate investigation.

Wilson remains jailed at the Mississippi County Detention Center on a $75,000 cash only bond.
