COLLINSVILLE, Ill. (AP) -- Three people are facing charges after authorities say they stole more than $50,000 worth of jewelry during a burglary in southwestern Illinois.

Madison County officials say 20-year-old Dylan R. Bird, 19-year-old Jessica E. McCarty and 24-year-old Joshua M. Cooley are each charged with felony residential burglary.

They’re each being held on $50,000 bond.

Prosecutors say the jewelry and another $300 in cash was stolen last week from a home in Collinsville. About half the stolen jewelry has been recovered.

McCarty and Bird have also been linked to another theft and are facing other charges for that case.


It wasn’t clear if the three had lawyers and telephone listings for the trio couldn’t be found.
