Bevier burglary investigation leads to drug charges

Jonathan (Bobby) Boyd, 30

What started as a burglary investigation lands two of three suspects in jail on drug-related charges.

On Friday, June 6, deputies from the Macon County Sheriff's Office responded to a home on Elm Street in Bevier, Mo. to investigate a reported burglary.

Evidence and statements obtained from witnesses led to the arrests of Rodney Kiel, 37, of Marceline, Mo., Jessica Shoemaker, 39, of Bevier and Jonathan (Bobby) Boyd, 30, of New Cambria, Mo.

All three suspects are charged with Second Degree Burglary.

Shoemaker also faces six other charges including stealing, trespassing, forgery, passing bad checks, unlawful use of marijuana paraphernalia and distribution of a controlled substance. Sheriff Kevin Shoemaker told KTVO that the controlled substance was a prescription medication.

Boyd faces additional charges, including unlawful use of drug paraphernalia and distribution of the controlled substance (methamphetamine).

Sheriff Shoemaker says the three stole a log splitter, various power tools and several pocket knives from a vacant house in Bevier.

Right now, Boyd is being held in the Macon County Jail on $54,000 cash-only bond and Shoemaker is being held in the Randolph County Jail on $9,000 bond. Kiel is free after posting bond.
