A Jefferson City man has been charged with breaking into a business in December.

Rickey Prewett, 37, is charged with second-degree burglary and stealing.

Prewett was working at Jack in the Box on Missouri Boulevard at the time of the incident, according to a Jefferson City Police Department probable cause statement. He had possession of keys to the front door and the store safe.

Prewett is believed to have entered the business in the early morning hours of Dec. 18, and store video shows him siting next to the safe holding a bank bag. There was $1,000 taken from the safe and $200 taken from cash registers. The video also shows tampering with camera positions, and parts of the security video from the time of the burglary apparently were deleted. Authorities believe Prewett, who had access to the video system, destroyed some of the footage.

Court records show Prewett has a long criminal history with various crimes including stealing, tampering with a motor vehicle, arson, receiving stolen property and resisting arrest.
