ATTEMPTED PAWNING OF SUNGLASSES REPORTED AS STOLEN LEAD TO FELONY CHARGE IN SEDALIA

Alleged theft of several items and attempted pawning of one of the items has led to a felony charge against a Sedalia resident.

A probable-cause statement filed with the Pettis County Circuit Court, on January 16, says a man reported he was missing a pair of Oakley Prizm and a pair of Oakley Jupiter carbon-fiber sunglasses, a soft body-armor vest and a small amount of cash from his truck. The total value of the items was estimated at nearly $1,400.

Later that day, authorities asked Family Pawn employees to be on the lookout for the items.

At about 2 p.m. that day, an employee at the pawn shop reported a man came in to pawn one pair of the sunglasses. The employee reportedly told the man the business would not purchase the item, so he left. The employee wrote down the license-plate number of the vehicle the seller allegedly was driving.

Authorities traced the license-plate number to Dakota Miller.

Online court documents state Miller has been charged with a Class D Felony for Stealing of $750 or More.

Bond was set at $7,500 cash or surety.

A future date in Pettis County Circuit Court in Sedalia has not been set yet.
