Sedalia PD Recover Property and Make Arrest in Burglary Case
Sedalia Police have spent the last couple of weeks investigating reports of approximately 16 burglaries at the KO Storage Facility on West Main Street.
Police made significant progress in the case over the last week and have recovered stolen items made one arrest, and are planning on filing charges on another person at a later date. This is according to a post on the Sedalia Police Department's Facebook page.
During the week of December 4, 2023, Sedalia Police received multiple reports of break-ins at the KO Storage Facility, 1526 West Main Street. There were multiple victims and over $40,000 in property was reported stolen.
Patrol Officers and the Sedalia Police Department's Criminal Investigations Bureau found some leads during their investigation, and two suspects were identified. On Thursday, December 14, 2023, Detectives served a search warrant at a storage unit facility in Sedalia. Police found several stolen items, including an enclosed trailer, which police determined had been stolen from multiple storage units in Johnson County, Missouri.
Officers served another warrant at another storage unit facility on Monday, December 18, 2023, and found several thousand dollars in stolen property from the KO Storage Facility break-ins earlier this month. The next day detectives recovered a large amount of additional stolen items from both the break-ins at the KO Storage Facility and the Johnson County break-ins referenced in this story.
The Pettis County Prosecutor's Office has filed three counts of Burglary 2nd Degree against Jordan R. Durland, 23, of Sedalia. He is being held at the Pettis County Jail on a $25,000 cash or surety bond.
Sedalia Police are expecting to request Burglary 1st Degree, Burglary 2nd Degree, and Felony Stealing charges be filed against Dillion J. Palmer, 30, of Sedalia/Warrensburg at a later date. Palmer is in custody at the Pettis County Jail on unrelated charges.
While Sedalia Police say a large amount of the stolen property has been recovered, there are still several items missing. Anyone with information on where those items might be should contact Pettis County Crimestoppers at 660-827-Tips (8477) or Detective Travis St. Cyr with the Sedalia Police Department at 660-827-7823 Ext. 1212.
Pettis County Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for any information that leads to the recovery of additional stolen items, or additional arrests concerning this case.
Those charged are presumed innocent until proven guilty in court.
