COLUMBIA — Two Boone County teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of stealing and using a credit card or other credit device.

Charles R. Donigian, 18, of Ashland was arrested Friday and charged with second-degree burglary and stealing of any credit card or letter of credit. Donigian was arrested on 21 counts of fraudulently using a credit device and one count of felony stealing, the Boone County Sheriff's Department said Friday night.

Alorie D. Beam, 17, of Columbia was arrested on suspicion of felony stealing. Both she and Donigian were being held at the Boone County Jail on Saturday morning.

A July burglary investigation led to the arrests, the Sheriff's Department said.

The Sheriff's Department did not return calls for further comment.

Donigian's bond was set at $108,000, and Beam's bond was set at $4,500.
