Three shoplifting suspects fleeing from Branson authorities were taken into custody in Boone County after a short pursuit.
Boone County Sheriff Tim Roberson says deputies from his department responded to a request for assistance from the Branson Police Department Sept. 30.
The three suspects, 26-year-old Kiara Ross, 19-year-old Jeremiah Dennis and 21-year-old De’marea Cushon, were allegedly involved in a number of shoplifting thefts from retail businesses in Branson. The three from Kansas City, Missouri, were reported southbound on U.S. HIghway 65 in a vehicle with Kansas temporary tags.
Following the short pursuit, the trio was taken into custody.
After a search of the vehicle was conducted, it was found the three suspects had over $6,000.00 in recently stolen merchandise in their possession.
