Wed, 10 Oct 2018 08:16:48 CDT

An investigation into stolen property on Vandalia Street led to the arrest of three Hillsboro residents on Saturday morning.

Gordon Barksdale, 59, Michael Lyons IV, 25, and Chelsea Lassiter, 32, were each arrested and cited for Possession of Stolen Property and Possession of Methamphetamine.

According to Chief Randy Leetham, Hillsboro Police Officers arrived at the scene at 809 Vandalia Street at approximately 11 a.m. Officers made contact with the residents and recovered the stolen items. After making contact, police discovered drug paraphernalia, suspected controlled substances and other possible stolen items in plain sight. Once a search warrant was obtained, officers recovered items from at least three separate burglaries. Suspected Heroin and Crystal Methamphetamine were also collected.

In addition to the other charges, Lyons was cited for three counts of Residential Burglary, Criminal Damage to Property, Possession of Ammunition with a Revoked FOID Card, and Unlawful Use of a Weapon. Lassiter was cited for three counts of Residential Burglary, Criminal Damage to Property and Possession of Ammunition with No Valid FOID Card.

All three subjects were taken to the Montgomery County Jail.
