More Charges Filed Against Southeast Kansas Truck Thief


 Additional charges have been filed against a man involved in a robbery and shooting in Cherokee County Sunday.

 61-year-old Charles Amos is facing charges of burglary and theft, in addition to charges of attempted murder. Amos was initially charged for his involvement in a robbery and shooting that happened in rural Cherokee County. He was captured in Oklahoma City.

 Cherokee County Sheriff David Groves says evidence was uncovered indicating Amos had obtained the gun used Sunday morning by burglarizing a vacant home in rural Columbus late last week. Groves says even though the burglary of the home and theft of property had not yet been discovered and reported by the owner, investigators determined where the burglary had occurred and confirmed the weapon used, along with two other firearms and other property, had in fact been stolen.
