SIKESTON, MO (KAIT) -

Police have charged a Memphis man for the burglary of a Sikeston pharmacy back in June.

According to a press release from the Sikeston Department of Public Safety, officers responded to a burglary at Randy’s RX, 1012 N. Main, on June 18.

Several types of narcotics and pain medications were stolen.

Detectives collected evidence at the scene, which was later sent to the crime lab to be analyzed.

Investigators used that evidence to link the Sikeston burglary with another pharmacy burglary in Cape Girardeau from April.

The evidence connected Marlon Deshone Quarles, 43, of Memphis to both burglaries.

On July 19, investigators with Sikeston DPS presented the case to a Scott County grand jury, who indicted Quarles on charges of first-degree burglary, stealing controlled substances, and property damage.

His bond was set at $125,000 cash only.

On August 1, Sikeston investigators and the FBI traveled to Memphis and arrested Quarles.

He was taken to the Shelby County Detention Center where he is awaiting extradition to Missouri.

Investigators are continuing to see if they can link Quarles to any other pharmacy burglaries in the area and trying to recover any of the missing narcotics.

“This is a good example of good police work and cooperation between the MSHP Crime Lab, Cape Girardeau Police Department, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation,” the press release stated.
