MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

A Sikeston man is facing felony charges after allegedly burglarizing a farm in Mississippi County, Mo.

The investigation began last year when a local man reported several items missing from his farm.

During the course of the investigation, officials developed information that suggested Jamie Lee White, 38, of Sikeston, and two minors, were responsible for the theft.

Deputies found and interviewed both minors, but were unable to interview White due to him having been returned on a parole warrant to the Missouri Department of Corrections.

Upon his release from prison Tuesday morning, White was taken into custody by Mississippi County deputies and delivered to the Mississippi County Detention Center.

White is charged with burglary in the second degree and theft/stealing of property valued at more than $500.

He faces two additional charges of endangering the welfare of a child.

White's bond was set at $25,000.
