Law Enforcement Searching for Burglary Suspect

At least one suspect remains at large following a burglary Tuesday, November 29th, in Memphis that investigators believe may be connected to a crime spree spreading across five to six counties in two states.

Memphis Police Chief Bill Holland stated that his department is investigating a break-in at a residence on Clay Street as well as thefts from two nearby vehicles.

The burglars took approximately $2,000 worth of electronics from a home at 339 N. Clay Street while the residents were sleeping. One resident was awakened during the burglary, and was able to identify one of the suspects, according to the Memphis Police Department.

Brandon Eggers, 19, of Wayland, formerly of Memphis, is being sought on felony warrants stemming from the break-ins. He is facing class C felony charges of stealing and tampering with a motor vehicle as well as class A misdemeanor stealing charges for the theft from one of the vehicles in Memphis.

Eggers is also wanted on a Clark County warrant for class C felony tampering with a motor vehicle.

A similar warrant was issued in Clark County on the same date for another former Memphis man, Aaron Hamner, 28, of Keokuk, IA.

Hamner was arrested in Kirksville this week on felony charges of tampering with a motor vehicle, possession of a controlled substance - methamphetamine and class C felony stealing.

He is in custody at the Adair County Jail on a $25,000 cash only bond after officers from the Kirksville Police Department apprehended Hamner in possession of a vehicle allegedly stolen in Van Buren County, Iowa.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Eggers is asked to contact the MPD at 465-2612. He is also being sought for questioning by the Keokuk and Kirksville police departments as well as the Clark County Sheriff's Office.
