2 men charged in Springfield home burglary
SPRINGFIELD, Mo.–Two men are accused of breaking into a woman’s Springfield home, using duct tape to tie her up and then beating and robbing her.
The Springfield News-Leader reported Sunday that 18-year-old Kalen Barclay and 20-year-old Shamar Smith are both charged with robbery, burglary and kidnapping.
According to a probable cause statement, the victim called 911 after working herself free of the duct tape while the men were rummaging through her residence. They stole money and a cellphone, among other things.
The men had escaped from a back door when police arrived, but were eventually caught.
Both men are being held at Greene County Jail. It wasn’t immediately clear if they have an attorney.
