News Release
Burglary Arrest
Pulaski County Sheriff J. B. King
March 1, 2011

On Feb. 28, 2011, at approximately 9:38am the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office was advised by the Pulaski County 911 Center that an attempted burglary had just occurred at 26075 Stereo Lane, Richland, Missouri. The home owner reported that two black males in a purple Chrysler PT Cruiser had tried to break into his home and had fled when he yelled at them. Several deputies went to the Buckhorn area in an attempt to locate the vehicle.

A purple PT Cruiser was observed parked at the Buckhorn Shell station and was placed under observation by a deputy in an unmarked police vehicle. A second deputy went to the crime scene to obtain further information. Other deputies parked near the Buckhorn Shell station. After a period of time one deputy entered the Shell station “for a cup of coffee” as he attempted to locate the driver of the PT Cruiser. A few minutes later the two black male suspects who had been hiding inside the PT Cruiser drove off toward I-44. The deputy in the Shell station alerted the other units and the PT Cruiser was stopped as it entered I-44 from the Buckhorn entrance ramp.

The two subjects inside the vehicle were advised of their Miranda rights and they told deputies they had been to the residence on Stereo Lane to collect a debt. They denied trying to break into the home. The deputy at the crime scene advised the deputies with the suspects that tools had been used to pry on the door. The burglary tools were found in the vehicle. Both suspects were taken to the Pulaski County Jail and placed on a 24-hour hold while the investigation continued.

A statement of probable cause was sent to the Pulaski County Prosecutor requesting charges for this incident. The prosecutor filed one count of burglary in the first degree, a class B felony, on Dmarquis Keenan Matthews, age 21, of 19585 Lyle Lane, Waynesville, Missouri and Quenten Deon Warren, age 18, of 147 Ridge View Drive, St. Robert, Missouri. The bond for both was set at $25,000 and both men remain in the Pulaski County Jail pending the posting of bond.
