A Jefferson City man has been charged in connection with two Cole County burglaries.

Jordan Willis, 24, is charged with felony stealing, possession of burglary tools and two counts of second-degree burglary. He also faces misdemeanor charges of second-degree tampering and stealing.

A Cole County Sheriff's Department probable cause statement states the crimes occurred Sunday at an apartment complex in the 5200 block of South Brooks Drive. One victim found her car had been stripped while parked in the parking lot. All four wheels were removed and many items inside the vehicle were taken. The victim also found her apartment had been broken into and more items were stolen.

Witnesses told deputies Willis was in the area and they eventually found him in what was supposed to be a vacant apartment. In that apartment, deputies allegedly found several of the items that had been reported stolen. Also located were items that had been reported stolen by another apartment tenant, including two broken flatscreen TVs and a mandolin.

Deputies said they also found numerous prescription medications that were not prescribed to Willis as well as a "slim jim," which is used to gain entry to locked cars.

Willis declined at talk to investigators.
