 On Wednesday, December 8, 2021, Deputies

 were dispatched to a residence around the

 500 block of County Road 458, located in

 Cape Girardeau County, for a report of a

 burglary. It was learned during contact with

 the victim that numerous items of value

 were taken from the residence and an

 investigation into who committed this burglary

 and stealing began.


 During a follow up on a lead our detectives

 interviewed and obtained a confession from

 a suspect of the burglary and stealing.

 Subsequently while contacting the suspect,

 it was learned that he was also in possession

 of a brand-new truck that was stolen off a

 dealership lot.


 After completing this investigation, a probable

 cause affidavit was sent to the Prosecuting

 Attorneys Office. A short time later a warrant

 was issued by the Courts on the following

 individual for the following crimes.


 Andrew M. Freeman


 Count: I - Class B felony of burglary in the

                  first degree.


 Count: II - Class D felony of stealing.


 This warrant came with a bond of $50,000.


 Andrew M. Freeman was issued a second

 warrant for the following


 Count I - Class D felony of tampering in

                 the first degree.


 This warrant came with a bond of $30,000.


 The charge of an offense is merely an

 accusation, and the defendant is presumed

 innocent until and unless proven guilty.
