The Callaway County Sheriff’s Office arrested two Auxvasse residents Wednesday after a slew of thefts committed at storage units throughout the county.
Deputies were able to obtain an image of a vehicle suspected to be used in the thefts. A Missouri State Highway Patrol Trooper spotted the vehicle west of Mexico in Audrain County at around 10:30 and made contact with the driver, 58 year old Joseph Bailey. Numerous articles of stolen property were located in the car.
Callaway County deputies were simultaneously dispatched to a residence in the 800 block of South Main Street in Auxvasse where the second suspect, 35 year old Stacey Bailey was arrested. More stolen items and a stolen vehicle were found at the house.
Both are being held at the Callaway County Jail.
