A burglary investigation in rural Monroe County resulted in the arrest of one person and an ongoing search for a second suspect.


Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputies made contact with Jeremy Pipes at a residence on Monroe County Road 1009 on Friday, Jan. 25. A second person, Shawn Reese, 42, of Moberly, is believed to have fled.


The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office and the K-9 unit with the Shelbina Police Department assisted in the search for Reese. A subsequent search of the property resulted in the recovery of multiple stolen items.

Authorities are asking for the assistance of the public in locating Shawn Reese, who is currently wanted on a $30,000 cash-only warrant.
