For Immediate Release


The St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office issued warrants on Thursday, January 9, 2014, on Joseph Been, 36 years of age, and Mark Been, 28 years of age, of the 2200 block of Osage, St. Louis, Missouri 63118 for Burglary Second Degree and Felony Stealing. Joseph Been was charged with 34 counts of burglary and Mark Been was charged with 13 counts. A $30,000 bond was issued to each. Photos of each are attached.

The warrants were issued after the subjects engaged in a series of business burglaries in the south county and Affton areas where they would enter the business by throwing an object through a glass window or door. The suspects also mainly targeted cash registers for the purpose of stealing US currency and usually did not take any other items within the business. The suspects are alleged to have committed multiple burglaries that began in early October 2013 and continued until an on-going investigation led to their arrest on November 27, 2013. Detectives from the Bureau of Crimes Against Property questioned the suspects and successfully obtained a warrant through the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
