Two Kansas City teenagers face multiple charges and another is in juvenile court custody stemming from an incident on Nov. 4 where vehicles were taken from Napleton Dodge in St. Peter.
Deandre Chiney, 17, of Kansas City, Missouri, and Jordon Neely, 19, of Kansas City, Kansas, were charged with receiving stolen property, burglary second degree, tampering and felony resisting arrest in the incident early that morning at the car dealership at 4951 Veterans Memorial Drive.
Neely faces an additional felony charge for leaving the scene and a juvenile suspect was in custody at the St. Charles County Family Court. The charges were issued by the St. Charles County Prosecuting Attorney’s office. Both suspects were held on Nov. 4 at the St. Charles County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
St. Peters Police said officers responded to a report of vehicle lights flashing, possibly from car alarms, on the Napleton lot at about 1:27 a.m. on Nov. 4. When police arrived on the scene they found four vehicles driving fast on the parking lot and trying to flee west on Veterans Memorial Parkway.
One of the vehicles, a 2016 Dodge, struck a police car on the parking lot while trying to get on the parkway. A 2016 Dodge Challenger Hellcat crashed into a ditch and the driver fled on foot only to be caught without incident after a short foot pursuit. With a police vehicle approaching, a 2016 Dodge Charger Hellcat cut through a grassy area at the parkway and Suemandy Drive and got stuck in the mud. The driver was caught without incident. The driver of a 2016 Dodge Charger lost control of the vehicle and struck a median and a sign. That driver was caught after a short foot pursuit.
The remaining car, a black Dodge Charger, fled the scene. Police are searching for at least two other suspects. A preliminary investigation showed the suspects burglarized the dealership to obtain keys for the vehicles, police said.
