Peanuts Lead to Camden County Charges

A man from St. Joseph is jailed without bond today, accused of using peanuts to try to assault a man at Lake of the Ozarks.
According to the Camden County Prosecuting Attorney James Cunningham, 27-year old Jacob Andes knew his mother’s boyfriend had a peanut allergy and put peanuts in the victim’s coffee, laundry soap, and underwear drawer.

According to the press release, during questioning by the Camden County Sheriff’s Department, Andes admitted to putting the peanuts in the victim’s house.
Andes is charged with first-degree assault or attempted assault and made his first court appearance Thursday before Judge Michael Gilley.

Andes was charged earlier in the week with Burglary in the first degree and Property Damage in the first degree; both are felonies.

He remains in the Camden County Jail, and no bond has been set.
