Police have made an arrest in connection with several area thefts. 18-year old Maurice K. Garrett Jr of Cape Girardeau was charged with two counts of second-degree burglary, four counts of stealing, two counts of first-degree burglary, one count of second-degree robbery and one count of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, all felonies; and two counts of misdemeanor receiving stolen property. About 11 a.m. Wednesday, a Cape police officer conducted a traffic stop. The vehicle and its occupants were suspected of being involved in several burglaries in recent months. Officers found what they believed was marijuana in the car. Garrett was taken into custody and charged after an investigation. Cpl. Darin Hickey of the Cape Girardeau Police Department said the original robbery occurred Dec. 31. Hickey says investigations do take time and because of that they were able to get multiple charges at once. Garrett is in custody at the Cape Girardeau County Sheriff’s Department. His bond has been set at $20,000 cash only for the burglary, stealing and robbery charges, with an additional bond of $17,500 cash or surety for possession and receiving stolen property.
