VERNON COUNTY, Missouri – Authorities at the Vernon County Sheriff’s Office have arrested two people who were allegedly involved in a theft from a vehicle and the fraudulent use of a stolen debit card.
Following a report of theft from a car in Deerfield, Missouri, on May 4, VCSO investigators uncovered illicit debit card use by the suspects at local businesses. Detectives visited these businesses to obtain surveillance footage and determine the identity of suspects from the footage.
The next morning, May 5, a follow-up was done on W. Vernon St. in Nevada. At the residence, Alesha Reavis, 38, of Lindsborg, Kansas, was taken into custody on multiple active warrants for her arrest in the state of Kansas. Suspected methamphetamine was found inside along with stolen property.
Additional charges for Reavis’ involvement in the robbery are also pending with the Vernon County District Attorney’s Office. She remains in the Vernon County Jail on her unrelated warrants.
Five days later, on the 10th, the deputies located Daniel Hankins, 21, of Nevada, and took him into custody. He received a court warrant the next day, charging Hankins with theft of a firearm, theft, and fraudulent use of a credit/debit device. He remains in the Vernon County Jail on $10,000 cash-only bond.
The investigation continues as police continue to locate the missing stolen goods.
