2 Marshall men charged with burglary

Friday, February 1, 2013

A search for a missing bag of dog food eventually led to burglary charges against two Marshall men, according to Saline County Circuit Court documents.

John Dale Eitel, 18, and La'Quintin Jamal Watson, 23, were charged Wednesday, Jan. 30, with class C felony second-degree burglary.

Marshall police officers said a resident reported Monday, Jan. 28, that while searching for a missing seven-pound bag of dog food, his stepson discovered a Playstation 3 game system and four games missing.

The resident's stepson reportedly made contact with one of the accused, and the game system was returned by a third party.

A Marshall man was charged Tuesday, Jan. 29, with class C felony unlawful possession of a firearm, according to circuit court documents.

Clayton James Jamison, 27, whose drivers license was suspended, was apprehended after a Marshall police officer observed him driving a vehicle, according to the police report.

Jamison, who was convicted of forgery in 2011, allegedly admitted there was a .22 caliber pistol under the driver's seat. He told the officer the gun belonged to someone else.

Bond was set at $7,500 cash or surety.

Jamison was also wanted by Saline County Circuit Court on probation violations for burglary, felony non-support and forgery with total bond set at $30,000 cash only.
