Wentzville police have taken into custody a man and woman from Wright City, after residents reported a suspicious vehicle outside a home that was under construction.
Wentzville police said it first received calls at around 10 p.m., Oct. 9, from residents living in the Wilmer Valley subdivision who reported they had observed a suspicious white SUV-style vehicle driving slowly in the neighborhood. The callers told police the vehicle turned around and was driving down the street with its lights turned off.
The vehicle allegedly stopped at a residence under construction where witnesses lost sight of the vehicle and called the Wentzville Police Department.
Responding officers observed a white 1993 Ford Aerostar minivan leaving the area. Immediately following the observation, at about 10:10 p.m., officers conducted an investigative stop on westbound I-70.
Police said the occupants of the van were Shane B. Crossno and Amy M. Schroeder, both from the 12400 block of White Lane in Wright City.
Police said the two were found to be in possession of a Whirlpool stainless steel stove. Further investigation by Wentzville officers determined that a Whirlpool stainless steel stove had allegedly been stolen from 212 Wilmer Ridge Dr.
Charges for burglary and stealing were sought and issued on Crossno and Schroeder, police said. They are being held on $10,000 cash only bond. This investigation is ongoing.
