Three people were taken into custody Wednesday morning in Novinger, Mo.
The Sullivan County Sheriff's Office says they received a tip on the location of three suspects in connection with a burglary. Sullivan County contacted Adair County after they learned the three were believed to be in Adair County.
An Adair County deputy spotted the vehicle and stopped it near the store in Novinger. Deputies from Adair and Sullivan County took three people into custody after they found stolen merchandise in the back of the vehicle.
Two of the three arrested are being held in Adair County pending the filing of formal charges.
One person, Jacob Cook, 20, of La Plata, was transported to Macon County where he had an arrest warrant on a charge of possession of meth. He is currently being held in the Macon County Jail under $45,000 cash only bond.
