Authorities in Page County report two people were arrested Saturday night on burglary charges, following the execution of a search warrant at a residence in Shenandoah. Sheriff Lyle Palmer says 30-year Sara Jeanine York, of Shenandoah, and 35-year old Christopher Lee Jones, of Essex,  were each arrested on charges of Burglary in the 3rd Degree (class “D” felony), Trespass (simple misdemeanor), and Theft 5th (simple misdemeanor). Both subjects are currently being held in the Page County Jail on $5,600 bond.   

Their arrests occurred at around 11:40-p.m., Saturday, after members from the Page County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at 407 1/2  West Lowell Avenue in Shenandoah. The charges against the pair stem from a year long, ongoing investigation, into the Burglaries of farm houses and buildings in rural Page County.  The Sheriff says additional charges are pending against York and Jones.  Charges against other suspects are also pending at this time.
