COLUMBIA — A fourth suspect has been arrested in connection with a June 24 home invasion in the Phenora Oaks apartment complex.
Deputies from the Boone County Sheriff's Department apprehended 19-year-old Darion J. Logan at his home around 8:30 p.m. Thursday.
According to a news release, the residents of the home that was invaded said three men "burst" through their front door looking for money and drugs. However, upon further investigation, Detective Tom O'Sullivan of the sheriff's department said it was discovered that a fourth person was involved in the invasion.
The release also stated deputies found a semi-automatic handgun that was dropped by one of the suspects at the apartment. O'Sullivan said that while the weapon was not lawfully obtained, it didn't register as stolen either.
One suspect, Joshua Wisham, 19, was arrested immediately after the incident. Deputies booked two more suspects — Felson D. Barney, 36, and Neal W. Henry, 33 — a few days later.
All four suspects are currently in jail and charged with first-degree robbery and armed criminal action. They face a maximum punishment of life in prison, although Sullivan doesn’t believe that sentence will be given.
O'Sullivan said there have been quite a few home invasions in Columbia, including one in the Clearview Subdivision near Phenora Oaks, but there is no evidence that the incidents are connected.
