Two area teens have been charged with felonies for allegedly stealing thousands of dollars worth of athletic equipment from Marshall High School.
According to a probable-cause statement, utilizing surveillance video, authorities identified one of two persons who entered an unlocked door adjacent to the theater of the school on November 3. Both subjects reportedly were carrying duffel bags, and both bags appeared to be empty. They allegedly cut off locks of the football cage and left the school with about $3,700 worth of sets of shoulder pads and helmets. The other person was identified at a later time.
According to court documents, 19-year-olds Latrell Antonio Johnson, of Slater, and Ethan Harris, of Marshall, each has been charged with Class D Felonies for Second-Degree Burglary and Stealing of $750 or More; and a trespassing misdemeanor. Bond has been set at $10,000 cash or surety, with 10-percent approved for Johnson and $10,000 cash only for Harris.
Harris was arraigned on Friday, November 15, and Johnson on Monday, November 18. A confined-docket hearing is scheduled for Harris; while a counsel-status hearing is on the docket for Johnson at 10 a.m. Wednesday, November 20, at Saline County Circuit Court.
