JACKSON, Mo. (KFVS) - Two people have been arrested after police responded to a burglary on Monday, January 6.
Corey, 30, and Aimee Winchel, 27, were arrested and charged with burglary and stealing.
Corey Winchel’s bond is set at $25,000 and Aimee Winchel’s bond is set at $20,000.
Jackson police officers responded to an apartment complex in reference to a burglary.
Police said the victim stated that two people came into the apartment, stole several items and fled.
According to court documents, the victim’s wrists were tied to his bed frame and his head was covered by a sheet during the incident.
Once the suspects left, police say the victim was able to get one of neighbors to respond to his home and free him.
The two allegedly stole the victim’s Smith & Wesson .38 special revolver, cell phone, iPad, the title to a dark blue 2006 Honda CRV and the Honda CRV. Also, the victim’s wallet with his driver’s license, debit card and other items were inside the Honda CRV.
Police say the victim told them he could barely see or identify the suspects because of the sheet over his head, but said the suspects had to be someone that knew him and where the stolen items were located. He also said his door has a number lock on it and only a few people know the combination.
Later, the victim told police his debit card had been used at a Jackson, Mo. bank’s ATM and $300 was withdrawn from his account.
Police say Corey Winchel was identified by photos from the ATM camera.
On Jan. 7, police executed a search warrant for their home, vehicle and the area where they were found.
Corey and Aimee Winchel were arrested and charged through the Cape Girardeau County Prosecutor’s Office.
