Police arrest Zachary Guenther, 30, of Milo, Missouri in connection to a burglary investigation.

The Vernon County Sheriff’s Office took a report on Monday afternoon of a burglary on 2600 Rd, northeast of Sheldon.

The Prosecutor’s Office filed charges against Guenther of Burglary 2nd Degree, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Stealing and Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
