A Neosho man implicated in a string of vehicle break-ins was arrested by Newton County sheriff’s deputies in possession of much evidence from those break-ins.

 And this is not the first such rodeo for Aaron Powers, 39, whom Chief Deputy Chris Jennings reported is now going through the court process after being charged in a series of vehicle break-ins in May 2015.

 “They got a partial license number, and we were able to take that partial number and come up with a license for this individual,” Jennings said of a witness who interrupted the burglary of vehicles in the 11000 block of Moose Drive near Neosho just before 4 a.m. Thursday.

“When we arrested him we recovered items from six different stealing cases, all out of vehicles, “ Jennings said. “Two firearms were recovered as well as one compound bow.”

The number of recovered items did not stop there.

 “We found a large amount of change, miscellaneous change and small denominations of cash that people had reported stolen from their vehicles,” Jennings said. “This was all over the seat of his car. We also found some methamphetamines in the car.”

Deputies went by his home several times during the night but he was not there, but Jennings said a third attempt found Powers in his vehicle in his driveway with items that were tied to at least six vehicle break-ins.

Powers is free after posting a $9,000 code bond on counts of receiving stolen property, unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

Illegal Firearms & More:

Three people were arrested in the service of search warrants Friday at the Budget Inn, 2205 Business 49 in Nesoho that Jennings said resulted from the suspicions of a gun shop owner.

Devan Teas, 25, of Neosho had taken a firearm to the shop to have it worked on and the owner called sheriff’s officials, and Jennings said a check found the AR-15 rifle had been reported stolen from Webb City.

“We located the individual at a Neosho hotel so we obtained a search warrant for the room and we located drug paraphernalia as well as a Mossberg 12-gauge shotgun,” he said. “We served search warrants on two rooms in the hotel and we found a .40 caliber pistol in the other room.”

Teas is jailed on a $25,000 surety bond on counts of receiving stolen property and possession of drug paraphernalia, and jail officials reported he also is held on a $400 bond on a Neosho police count of trespassing..

Lace Cutsinger was also arrested and jail officials said the 24-year-old Neosho woman is held on a $20,000 bond on counts of receiving stolen property and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Angel Odom, 29 of Grove, Oklahoma was also arrested on a warrant from Oklahoma, Jennings reported. See the Neosho police report for details on other charges against Odom.
