Carbondale Man Convicted of Multiple Burglaries

Oct 4, 2017

A Jackson County Jury returned guilty verdicts on five criminal counts against a Carbondale man.

The Jackson County State's Attorney's office says 31-year-old Apollo Davis was convicted of one count of Residential Burglary, two counts of Burglary, one count of Possession of a Stolen Firearm, and one count of Unlawful Possession of a Weapon by a Felon.

Jurors determined Davis broke into homes near De Soto on multiple occasions in August, September and October 2016.

He also pawned some of the stolen items and a search warrant found more stolen items in Davis' Carbondale residence, including a firearm stolen during a residential burglary of a home on Landfill Road in De Soto. Due to Davis' status as a convicted felon, he cannot lawfully possess firearms.

Because of the defendant's prior criminal history, he faces six to thirty years in prison and a range of two to ten years on the charge of possession of a weapon by a felon.

Davis is scheduled to be sentenced on December 4.
