The Sedalia Police Department put a man with a warrant for a burglary in Kansas behind bars Sunday after he allegedly attempt to steal more than $800 dollars in cash and several credit cards from Fitter’s 5th Street Pub.

Prosecutors charged Derrick J. Davidson, 20, no address given, with first-degree burglary, a class B felony, and stealing more than $500, a class C felony. He is currently awaiting trial in the Pettis County Jail in lieu of posting a $100,000 cash or surety bond.

According to court documents, Davidson came into the pub with two other individuals and a short time later entered a restricted office area of the business. As the suspect’s friends began to look for him, a manager went into the office and found the money missing.

After calling police, the manager went back to the restricted area and discovered Davidson exiting a nearby hallway.

During a search, officers found Davidson in possession of the missing items, reported as a bag containing cash in distinct denominations, several credit cards, a Fitters receipt and a Fitters lunch card, according to court documents.

While Davidson originally gave police a fictitious name, fingerprinting revealed his identity and two active fugitive from justice warrants for burglary and possession of a controlled substance in Franklin County, Kan., and a municipal failure to appear warrant in Higginsville.

According to Missouri statute, a person commits the crime of burglary in the first degree if he unlawfully enters a building or inhabitable structure to commit a crime and another person who is not a participant in the crime is present.

A class B felony carries a term of five to 15 years and a class C felony carries a maximum punishment of seven years in the Missouri Department of Corrections.
