Suspect in Town & Country burglary arrested
Jeffrey Schwartz, 24, of the 1200 block of Stillhouse Creek in Chesterfield, was arrested and charged with receiving stolen property in connection with a burglary that occurred in the 100 block of Bon Chateau near Ladue and Babler Roads on June 27. He is being held at the county jail on a $30,000 cash only bond.
Over $14,000 in jewelry, an iPad, a Dell laptop, a MacBook Pro laptop and an iPhone were taken during the break-in. Entry was made via a rear sliding door that was pried open.
On Aug. 10, Schwartz pawned two laptops and an iPad at Southside Jewelry and Loan. The serial numbers on the pawned MacBook Pro laptop and iPad matched the ones stolen from the residence.
This was not the first time Schwartz was wanted in conjunction with robbery. In September of 2011, he was the primary suspect in the burglary of a home in the 1200 block of Timmor Court in Town & Country. He was arrested by Town & Country Police in January of 2012.
The case was reviewed by the St. Louis County Grand Jury where a “true bill” was issued for receiving stolen property after it was found that Schwartz sold over $13,300 of the victim’s jewelry at Missouri Gold Buyers.
