Four men were charged with breaking into Lou Fusz Automotive by shattering a glass door Friday. While the men were grabbing car keys to vehicles on the lot, St. Peters officers arrived, police said.
Anton Bolden, 18, of the 6400 block of Wellsmar Avenue in Hillsdale, was charged Friday with second-degree burglary and resisting arrest. Police said he fled the scene and ran across Interstate 70 before being taken into custody.
Police said Bolden was seen dropping a set of new car keys, a tablet computer taken from the car dealership and a pair of black gloves as he was running away.
Charged with second-degree burglary were Noah A. Smith, 22, of the 5800 block of Minerva Avenue in St. Louis; Marcus Neal, 17, of the 10300 block of Ittner Drive in Dellwood; and Darion Grey, 17, of the 6300 block of Wellsmar Avenue in Hillsdale.
A juvenile also was taken into custody for the break-in.
St. Peters Police said the men arrived at Lou Fusz in a 2013 Chrysler 300 driven by Bolden. The car had been stolen from Mid Rivers Chrysler along with four other vehicles.
The five defendants broke a glass door and grabbed keys to vehicles in the parking lot, police said.
Bolden, Grey and Smith are being held in St. Charles County jail. Bail was set at $25,000 each.
Neal was released after posting a $25,000 bond.
