DE SOTO, MO. (KMOV.com) – A resident of a Jefferson County neighborhood says he called 911 after he noticed two men, allegedly claiming to be government agents, stealing his neighbor’s property.
“I didn’t see I.D. It just looked like something was posted right there on his belt,” said Jason Johndrow, a resident of the Olympian Village Community, located near De Soto. He says the men approached him, saying they were federal agents. “They weren’t wearing any uniforms or anything like that. Their (vehicle) wasn’t marked or anything.” He also says he saw a female driver with the two men.
Johndrow says the two men walked over to his neighbor’s house, went inside, and began carrying items out of the home.
“I saw another car pull into the driveway and the guys carrying stuff out of the guy’s house,” Johndrow said. “They were bringing in a couple of guns. They came out and brought something covering a blanket. I found out later it was a safe or something.”
It was at this point Johndrow notified police, but the alleged agents were able to get away before authorities arrived. The three were seen driving in a silver Dodge Durango.
The investigation is ongoing.
