Jefferson City woman charged in burglary, stealing case

March 26th, 2019 in Local News

A Jefferson City woman was charged Saturday with burglary and stealing after she allegedly entered into where she used to live to steal jewelry.

Rachel D. Farmer, 23, allegedly entered a dwelling in the 10100 block of West Brazito Road at or about 9:30 p.m. on or about March 20 with the purpose to steal, according to court documents.

The victim at the home had told Farmer to leave, but she allegedly entered anyway, and the victim saw Farmer take a ring worth at least $150 from a shelf in the living room.

An officer said in a probable cause statement filed by the Cole County Sheriff's Office that Farmer admitted to having the ring when she was contacted by deputies, and Farmer was arrested at 11:29 p.m. Saturday.

Drug charges filed against Farmer in February listed her then-home address as the location where she allegedly stole the ring.

The first-degree burglary charged filed against Farmer on Saturday is a class B felony, and the stealing charge is a class A misdemeanor.

Farmer's bond was set at $25,000.
