KENNETT, MO (KAIT) - Police in Kennett make an arrest in a burglary case and are looking for a robbery suspect in another incident that happened Wednesday.

Kennett police state that just before 11 p.m. officers arrested Thomas Lee Simmons on burglary charges at his home on Henderson Street in Kennett. During a search of the home officers said they found stolen items reported missing during a recent burglary and other incidents.

Marijuana and a marijuana plant growing inside the home was also discovered, according to police. 

Simmons is currently in the Dunklin County Jail on burglary and several drug charges.

In a completely separate case at 12:45 p.m., police investigated a robbery at a Huck's Food and Fuel on St. Francis Street in Kennett.

An employee told police a tall, stocky man came into the business, reached into the cash register and grabbed an undisclosed amount of money. He then ran from the bushiness and got into a late model gray Buick with a blue rag top parked behind the store.

The man was wearing a gray shirt, gray pants and a black bandana.

Anyone with information about the incident should call KPD at 573-888-4622.
