PEMISCOT COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

A 19-year-old is facing burglary charges after several home break ins were reported Monday in Pemiscot County.

Justin Brimhall, 19, has been charged with three counts of burglary second degree, felony stealing, tampering with a motor vehicle and felony resisting-interfering with arrest.

According to Captain Ryan Holder, Pemiscot County deputies were called to two different homes Monday around the Braggadocio community where residents say their homes had been broken into sometime during the day.

A person who lives in a home off Highway J reported to sheriff's deputies that a cell phone, watches, assorted change and collectable coins were stolen from the house.

And, a residence on County Road 426 reported to deputies that assorted change was missing from the home. Deputies say both homes appeared to have been a forced entry.

On Tuesday, a person who lives off Highway B just outside Pascola said their home had been broken into after a brick was thrown through a window. They told deputies that items were taken from the residence including a small amount of change and other money.

While patrolling the Deering community, Pemiscot County deputies spotted a white minivan, matching the description of the one reported to the Hayti police on Monday evening.

Deputies tried to stop Brimhall's vehicle and it fled westbound on Highway J, reaching speeds of 100 mph.

The vehicle later ran off the road hitting several state highway signs and eventually crashed into a ditch.

Brimhall then fled on foot leading deputies out into a rice field where the subject was apprehended and taken into custody.

It was later learned the vehicle in the crash was the stolen vehicle from Hayti and it had received a significant amount of damage.

According to Captain Ryan Holder, Brimhall cooperated with authorities and most of the items stolen since Monday has been recovered.
