Tuesday, January 24, 2017

The charges brought against Destiny Dawn Rose, 26, of Marshall, by the Saline County Prosecutor's Office continued to grow Monday, Jan. 23, with the addition of two more charges of first degree burglary, a class B felony, and two additional class A misdemeanor charges of theft / stealing (value of property or services is less than $500).

With the most recent charges, the total of offenses charged to Rose in December 2016 and January 2017 now include nine separate counts of first degree burglary and 10 counts of misdemeanor theft/stealing. Of all the charges against Rose, all but one of the misdemeanors result from alleged thefts from the Marshall Walmart between October and December 2016. Reports state Rose had previously been trespassed from the Sedalia Walmart for multiple incidents of alleged theft. The outlying charge resulted from an alleged theft of a cell phone, while in custody at the Saline County Jail, from an individual being processed out of the facility.

Probable cause statements relating to the newest charges allege Rose perpetrated two separate burglaries at the Marshall Walmart on Thursday evening, Dec. 15, 2016. One report alleges she concealed $591.48 worth of merchandise, including a styling iron, various video games, a laptop computer and a cellular telephone on her person at approximately 6:06 p.m. and exited the store without paying for them. The second report alleges she returned to the store at approximately 11:10 p.m., concealed two smart 2-in-1 tablets and a pea coat, a combined estimate of $235.98 in merchandise, on her person, again exiting the store without paying.
