Police responded and a car description was developed. A Wentzville officer noticed a car matching the description parked at a local business along with another car nearby. Noting the license plate of the second vehicle, the officer attempted to stop the vehicle which had started to pull off the lot. A short pursuit ensued. When the driver finally stopped, officers found a number of items from the burglary, including a handgun, in the car.
The driver, Dustin Ronnie James Lenzing, 18, of Warrenton, was taken into custody.
The license plate of the second vehicle led to a second suspect, identified as Lucas K. Green, 19, of Wentzville. The investigation found he was armed with a gun during the burglary. Police got a search warrant for Green’s residence. There they found additional items stolen during the burglary. Green was located soon after and taken into custody.
Lenzing and Green face first-degree burglary charges. Both men are being held at the St. Charles County Adult Detention facility on $35,000 cash-only bond.
