It's another case of an apparent smash-and-grab burglary, this time at a north county jewelry store. Police say a stolen SUV was used to smash into Legacy Jewelers at New Halls Ferry Road and Lindbergh Boulevard. Police say it happened just before 5:00 this morning. The crime has a similar M.O. to other smash-and-grabs in the area over the past few weeks, with a stolen vehicle being used to crash into a store front, and another car serving as the getaway vehicle. Police have no suspects.
Three people, including a St. Louis police officer are seriously injured after a Volkswagen slammed into a patrol car in Midtown last night. It happened about 9:30 at Washington and Compton. Police say a passenger car with three people inside had been driving erratically earlier in the evening. Police pursued the car, but had to stop to answer another call. A short time later, the car struck a different police car. One person climbed out of the passenger car and ran from the scene. The two other people in the car, and the 35-year-old police officer were all taken to the hospital. All three are listed in serious condition. Police are still looking for the 27-year-old person who fled.
Ellisville Mayor Adam Paul says he's ready to do the business of city governance. That's despite the fact that he has to work with some of the city council members who voted to impeach him in April. Last night was Paul's first city council meeting since a judge reinstated him Monday while his appeal to overturn the impeachment is reviewed. A crowd of supporters welcomed Paul back to office. As he took his seat, most of the crowd stood up and applauded him in support. After the meeting Paul said the city will be back in court this Friday trying to undo the ruling that put him back in office.
