(KMOV) -- Three men were charged with burglary for their alleged involvement in several car break-ins across St. Clair County.
On Monday, O’Fallon Police arrested Paul O’Keefe, 32, Philip Ney, 20, and Anthony Bruce, 22, after they were caught using a stolen credit card at an O’Fallon, Ill. Walmart.
O’Fallon authorities notified St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department after they learned those three men were under investigation for four reported vehicle burglaries in the area of Belleville, Fairview Heights, Mascoutah, and Freeburg.
Further investigations led to charges being filed against the suspects. O’Keefe and Ney were both charged with four counts of burglary and Bruce was charged with one felony count of theft subsequent.
A St. Clair County judge set bond for O’Keefe and Ney at $75,000.00. Bruce’s bond was sent at $25,000.00.
All three suspects are in the St. Clair County Jail.
