On July 19, 2018 Jones County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to Merchants Park in Ellisville in reference to a larceny. The complainant reported that someone had come in the previous evening and stolen 9 bleacher seats from the ballpark. The bleachers cost approximately $3,000.
An investigation began, and with information from local recycling businesses, it was discovered that Lewis Rounsaville, 43 of Ellisville, and Stephanie Gray, 42 of Heidelberg, had turned in those missing bleachers to sell.
Rounsaville and Gray were taken into custody, interviewed and admitted to taking the bleachers. They were both charged with Grand Larceny.
Their initial appearances are scheduled for August 10, 2018 at 9:00am at Jones County Justice Court.
