A burglary that occurred earlier this month in Moniteau County has been solved.

According to sheriff's department reports, the burglary occurred March 4 at a residence on Route T in the southern part of the county. Items taken were valued at several thousands of dollars.

Deputies were called Monday to assist the Missouri Highway Patrol on a vehicle stop, and one of the deputies saw items in the vehicle that matched the description of items taken in the Route T burglary.

The driver of the vehicle, Alex Gilbert, 21, of Smithton, was taken into custody for questioning; and he eventually admitted to breaking into the home and stealing items.

Gilbert was arraigned Tuesday on charges of second-degree burglary and felony stealing. Some of the stolen items have been recovered, and the effort to locate other missing items continues.
