Standoff on Monroe Avenue
Lebanon and Laclede County Law Enforcement have arrested suspects who may have been involved in a series of burglaries. The investigation began when the victim of a burglary that happened in the county, reportedly spotted one of the suspects at a convenience store, and followed them to a home on Monroe Street in Lebanon. The Sheriff’s Office obtained a search warrant, after which Law Enforcement surrounded the residence, and three people came out. One of the suspects, crawled through the attic into an adjacent residence, kicked his way through the ceiling, fell to the floor and was arrested. Officers then went into the attic of the original residence, and took two more people into custody. Officers reportedly used a taser and mace on one of the suspects, to take him into custody. Authorities are seeking at least one more suspect. Charges are pending.
