COLUMBIA — A man was arrested Thursday night on burglary charges.

Dennis C. Whitehead was arrested in connection with several cases in the James Dale/Brown Station roads area.

Police were dispatched at 9:23 p.m. to the 2900 block of Northland Drive for a possible burglary. Although it was reported that four men were seen forcibly entering a residence, the only arrest made was of Whitehead, according to a Columbia Police Department press release.

The witness said the four men entered the residence and were there for a brief time before leaving in a white vehicle headed northbound on Northland, according to a news release. 

Street Crimes Unit Officers observed the vehicle on the 3300 block of James Dale where they arrested Whitehead and then transported him to the Columbia Police Department, the news release said. 

As of Saturday evening, Whitehead was being held on a total bond of $52,500 at the Boone County Jail.

He was arrested on the following charges: two counts of burglary in the second degree, two felony counts of receiving stolen property and two counts of unlawful possession of a concealable weapon, according to the release.
