For Immediate Release
The St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office issued charges on Friday, September 13, 2013, of Burglary Second and Felony Stealing to Charnisa Goodson, 27 years of age, of the 6700 block of Amora Avenue, St. Louis, Missouri 63134; Darien Dampier, 18 years of age, of the 3900 block of Hermans Lake Court, Florissant, Missouri 63034; and Eddie Washington, 17 years of age, of the 11800 block of Cato Drive, Florissant, Missouri 63033. A $40,000 bond was issued to each. Photos of each are attached.
The charges were issued after the subjects engaged in a series of burglaries in the south county area where they would back their vehicle into a driveway before approaching the front door. When a resident answered, they offered to do property services, such as cutting the grass. If the door was not answered, they would enter the rear of the residence and kick in the back or side doors. Once inside the residences, jewelry and electronics were stolen.
The subjects attempted another burglary at the 3100 block of Sabrina in unincorporated north county at 11:35 AM on Thursday, September 12, 2013, where responding officers observed the dark colored SUV leaving the scene and gave out a description, which led to two stops. The first stop conducted by the Collinsville Police Department at Highways 111 and 255 resulted in passengers being taken into custody after a foot pursuit. The second stop was by the Madison County Sheriff’s Department, who arrested the remaining subject/driver.
