The property owner drove up on two individuals leaving their residence. The victim advised the suspect vehicle fled north on 13 Highway, and identified it as a blue-colored, older model, Hyundai Santa Fe, bearing Missouri registration ZA0Y8N.

The victim described one male as heavier set, with brown hair, facial hair, and had a stocky build wearing a hooded jacket and blue jeans. The other was tall and skinny also wearing a black hooded jacket and jeans. Surveillance footage, obtained from the Leeton Casey’s General Store, reveals both men at the cash register, near the time of the burglary.
