New charges for Gibson and Vogel

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

Charges contained in reports provided by law enforcement officials are not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting charges must be presented before a jury, whose duty is to determine if the accused is guilty or not guilty of the charges.

Warrants for the arrest of Brandon M. Vogel, 17, and Chad Lane Gibson, 18, both of Marshall, were issued Tuesday, May 26, in connection with a burglary that occurred in Slater on April 10.

The two are charged with class C felony burglary in the 2nd degree and class C felony theft/stealing of a .22 caliber Weatherby rifle. Also missing from the victim's home are coins, a watch, a pocket knife, a lock box containing various papers and two books of blank checks, according to the incident report.

Vogel and Gibson were charged earlier this month with burglary and theft in connection with a break-in that occurred the same day at another Slater residence.

Gibson is also implicated in a robbery and assault that occurred in Marshall on May 3.

According to the report, an unnamed 16-year-old juvenile accompanied Gibson and Vogel in both break-ins.

As of late Wednesday afternoon, May 27, Gibson had turned himself in at Saline County Justice Facility and posted a $7,500 cash or surety bond; Vogel had not yet been taken into custody.

A court date has not been set for the newer charges.

  • There are explanations for bad choices but they are not excuses. I will add that there is redemption if one takes the responsibility for their mistakes and for the corrections. Time heals all things.

  • YES...definitely probation, they only committed two different burglaries, and not just one like the Brandon Johnson burglary. Teach these crooks that it's not ok to break into your house and steal your hard earned giving them that hard lesson of roaming the streets a free man like all the other LAW ABIDING CITIZENS...probation all the way.

    I opt we take this a step further and enact a law that says that all valuable possessions have to be left on your front lawn so that crooks don't have to carry around heavy tools to break into your home or risk hurting their feet kicking your doors in or cutting themselves on the glass that they have broken to get into your private sanctuary called your home. It is long overdue that we recognize the crook's rights and forget about victim's rights in this country....hold on NEWS FLASH coming in....that has already happened.

    Didn't we have a Scharnhorst that committed some burglaries recently, get caught, get probation and less than a year later commit another burglary...probation sure showed him down the straight narrow.
