A Sheridan teenager is charged with his second burglary in a month in connection with a break in at Metz Beverage a few weeks ago. 18-year-old James Allen received his first burglary charge on October 5th after police witnessed him leaving the Sport Stop in the early morning hours.
Allen and two juveniles are now charged with breaking into Metz Beverage and stealing several cases of beer as well as over $200 in cash on October 4th or 5th. Allen is currently in the Sheridan County Detention Center on a $25,000 cash bond for the Sport Stop burglary. Circuit Court Judge John Sampson placed an additional $10,000 cash bond on the latest charge. Allen could spend up to 10 years in prison on each of the three counts of burglary he is currently charged with committing.
In another Circuit Court case, 29-year-old Dennise Rule appeared before Judge Sampson on a felony charge of interfering with a peace officer. Rule allegedly resisted arrest and caused over $500 damage to a Sheridan County Sheriff patrol vehicle by kicking and hitting her head against the windows and doors after being detained in the back seat. During the altercation she is accused of kicking DCI Special Agent Travis Harnish in the hand hard enough to require medical attention. Sampson set her bond at $15,000 cash.
