CARUTHERSVILLE — A man from Caruthersville is jailed and accused of a series of burglaries at churches and businesses in the southeast Missouri community.
The 25-year-old suspect's name has not been released pending formal charges. He is being held in the Pemiscot County Jail.
The Southeast Missourian reported that burglaries were discovered Wednesday at the Caruthersville School District's bus barn and at Loxcreen Co. An investigation led to the arrest.
Police said the arrest also solved other recent burglary cases, including break-ins at a Methodist church and a Church of God.
