Tools, jewelry, an electronic game system and a rifle were stolen Aug. 20 from a home on Cheryl Court, High Ridge.
The sheriff's deputy report reported that the homeowner said she had seen a woman running from her residence after she attempted to gain entry to the home through a bedroom window. During a canvass of the area, deputies located a video surveillance video that provided them with a vehicle description and license plate number for two suspects. The deputies conducted an interview with the suspects - a man and a woman - at their residence. After receiving permission to search the suspects' residence, deputies discovered several items that were reported stolen from several other burglaries. The female suspect confessed to the burglaries, although the male suspect refused to cooperate. The stolen items were seized as evidence.
