Dad turns in burglar son

Thursday, 06 February 2014 10:53 Published in Local News
Police in the metro east say they have broken up a suspected three county burglary ring in Illinois after a father came forward and turned in his son.
Fox 2 reports that police have arrested four suspects and are looking for a fifth. Authorities says they were behind nearly 30 home and car break-ins in Madison, St. Clair, and Monroe Counties, from Hollywood Heights area near Caseyville down to Columbia, Illinois, authorities said.
All of the crimes occurred in December and January.
St. Clair County Sheriff, Rick Watson, said the suspects stole hundreds of items, including firearms, worth tens of thousands of dollars. 
Fox2 says 18 year old Tyler Ashcraft, of Caseyville, is the accused ring leader.  Ashcraft’s father alerted police investigators who tied Ashcraft to three home burglaries and 21 car break-ins in Columbia.  
Sheriff Watson says he applauds Ashcraft's father for doing the right thing, especially with the theft of multiple handguns and long guns. 

St. Louis County nurse victimized patients

Thursday, 06 February 2014 08:23 Published in Local News
 ELLISVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A St. Louis County nurse is facing felony charges for allegedly stealing morphine from elderly patients and diluting their medicine with water and mouthwash to hide the crime.
 KMOV-TV reports that 27-year-old Christi Franklin of Ballwin is charged with stealing of a controlled substance. She does not yet have a listed attorney.
 Authorities say the thefts occurred between April 6 and July 6 at a facility for the elderly in Ellisville operated by Bethesda Health Group.
Bethesda says the misuse of drugs was reported as soon as it was discovered, investigations were begun, and Franklin was immediately fired. The company says it appears that just one or two residents were affected.

NO. 13 SAINT LOUIS TOPS HAWKS, WINS 15TH STRAIGHT

Thursday, 06 February 2014 07:32 Published in Sports

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Rob Loe scored 17 points and Jordair Jett had 10 points and seven assists to help No. 13 Saint Louis top Saint Joseph's 65-49 on Wednesday night for a team-record 15th straight victory.

The Billikens (21-2, 8-0 Atlantic 10) topped 14-game winning streaks set in the 1958-59 and 1993-94 seasons.

The Billikens, who needed overtime to beat George Mason on Saturday, extended their best start in team history and are 8-0 on the road.

Saint Louis last lost Dec. 1 to Wichita State, 70-65.

Ronald Roberts Jr. had 19 points for the Hawks (15-7, 5-3), who missed 14 of 15 3-point attempts.

The Hawks blew a chance midway through the second half to make a big dent in their 15-point deficit when DeAndre Bembry missed three of four free throws during a pivotal stretch. Roberts also missed two from the line, keeping Saint Louis' lead at nine points. The Billikens showed Saint Joseph's how to get it done from the line, making four straight to open a 45-32 lead, and they hit just enough big shots down the stretch to hold off the Hawks.

Hawks coach Phil Martelli basically used a six-man rotation and his tired team didn't have enough lift in those late-game jumpers to mount a serious rally. Mike McCall Jr. and Loe broke the game open with 3s in the final minutes for an 18-point lead, propelling the Billikens into the team record book.

The Hawks had 17 turnovers and only five assists.

Saint Joseph's, which hasn't made the NCAA tournament since 2008, had won 11 of 13 since Dec. 7 to at least start thinking about some kind of postseason play. The Hawks were coming off a 73-68 win over No. 21 UMass and hoped to beat Top 25 teams in consecutive games for the first time since March 1966. That drought will go on.

Saint Louis has worked its way up the rankings in large part to a defense that allows only 59 points per game, tops in the A-10 and eighth nationally. The Billikens led the A-10 in field goal percentage defense (39 percent) and were second in 3-point field goal defense (29 percent).

The tentative Hawks got a taste of what it's like playing against the Billikens: They missed 16 of 22 shots from the field (1 for 6 on 3s) for a miserable 27 percent. That's not good enough to beat even the weakest nonconference team, much less against a program that's won NCAA tournament games in consecutive seasons.

Austin McBroom hit a 3 and drove the lane for an uncontested layup during a 13-1 run late in the first half that sent Saint Louis into the break with a 35-22 lead.

The Billikens might want to stick around Philadelphia - they play Saturday at La Salle.
