Felony charges have been filed against a pair of individuals who allegedly broke into Winchester’s Marshall Chevrolet over the weekend.
Scott County State’s Attorney Michael Hill explains what officers saw when they arrived at the Winchester dealership Sunday night at 11:50.
“Officers got a report that somebody was inside Marshall Chevrolet. It sounded like they were beating and breaking some things apart in there. Two suspects ran from the building and they were apprehended less than three minutes later,” says Hill.
The suspects were later identified as 23-year-old Christopher Bartelmay and 22-year-old Brennan Motley.
The Scott County Sheriff’s Office confirmed “substantial damage” was done to the heating and cooling duct-work. An early estimate reports around $2,500 in damages.
Hill says Bartelmay and Motley made their first appearance in Scott County Court Monday morning. Both are being charged with burglary and criminal damage to property
“They had a public defender and special public defender appointed to represent them. Bond was set at $50,000 and 10 percent to apply for both,” says Hill.
Hill says law enforcement still needs to investigate the crime scene.
The next court appearance for Bartelmay and Motley is April 28th at 10 a.m.
Bartelmay and Motely are currently behind bars.
