LINCOLN COUNTY, MO. (KTVI) – A series of business burglaries committed in Lincoln County and St. Charles County has both sheriffs’ offices possibly looking at the same suspects for at least 4 burglaries.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office says their looking for two suspects, one whose worn tennis shoes with a reflective Y on the heel, wears a mask and a hoodie, while the second suspect drives a light colored 2006 to 2008 Dodge Rams 1500 with factory head and fog lights, factory exhaust, no running boards and no ladder racks, that’s been used as the getaway vehicle.

All of the burglaries have occurred in the early morning hours, two in Hawk Point on January 16th, a VFW Hall and a bar. In both burglaries, a total of $2,100 was taken from the cash registers, ATM’s and vending machines.

The two other burglaries occurred in St. Charles County, and in Old Monroe in Lincoln County; both bear similarities to the cases in Hawk Point.

Authorities believe the duo are familiar with the businesses, due to the efficiency of the burglaries.

Anyone with information regarding the burglaries is encouraged to call the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at 636-528-8546 or the St Charles County Sheriff’s Office at 636-949-7900.
