Two Tennessee men arrested in Missouri
Miner, Missouri, police arrested two Memphis, Tennessee, men Tuesday morning on burglary charges.
Police say they got a report Monday of two men taking things from a home on Powell Street that was empty because it was being renovated. They say the men ran away from the house when officers arrived, leaving behind a set of burglar tools and a vehicle rented from a company in Memphis.
After further investigation, police say they arrested 28-year-old Jairus Alston and 33-year-old Justin Whitmore on Tuesday. The men were each charged with second degree burglary, possession of burglary tools and second degree property damage. Each is held at the Scott County Sheriff’s Department on a $2,500 cash only bond.
