Brothers suspected in dozens of business burglaries

Wednesday, 04 December 2013 02:55 Published in Local News

   Two brothers are facing charges for burglarizing a Brentwood sewing store, but police suspect the pair in nearly three dozen business break-ins in south St. Louis, South County and Jefferson County since mid-October.  

   Police used GPS tracking to catch Joseph and Mark Been after spotting their car on surveillance video at the scene of several burglaries.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the first time undercover detectives followed the brothers was last week when the pair was tracked to a business where a cash register was stolen.  Kirkwood police then stopped the brothers' car and arrested them.  

   More charges are expected.

$4M donation for Edwardsville Schools' aquatic center

Tuesday, 03 December 2013 10:50 Published in Around Town

   The Edwardsville School District will be building an aquatic center with an Olympic-sized swimming pool at its sports complex thanks to a four-million dollar donation from the Charles and Sharon Fruit Foundation.  The center will be named the Chuck Fruit Aquatic Center in honor of the late Chuck Fruit, a 1965 Edwardsville High School graduate.  

   The EGHM Foundation, a local business group that raises money for district projects, will fund the remaining $1.3 million needed for the project. 

UPDATE: Suspect held for Belleville murder

Tuesday, 03 December 2013 03:26 Published in Local News

   A 53 year old Belleville man shot to death as he opened his front door Saturday night was not the intended target, police say.  

   The St. Clair County State's Attorney has charged 36 year old Dashon Hinkle with first-degree murder in the shooting of John Fath Senior.  

   Belleville police say Hinkle had gone to Fath's home in the 400 block of North 40th Street to "pay a visit" to the victim's son, John Fath Junior.  

   Police say the junior Fath and Hinkle both have long criminal records.  

   Hinkle is jailed on a $2 million bond.
