Man Arrested for Burglary Last Week Charged for Additional Burglary

A Benton man arrested last Friday for burglarizing a home has been charged with another burglary, this time at a local business. Deputies say deputies responded on March 29 to a report of a burglary at the Gold-N-Gun Pawn Shop on US Highway 641 North. Deputies said 38-year-old Jason Alexander broke a window and stole several items from the business. Alexander was charged on Wednesday with third-degree burglary, first-degree criminal mischief, possession of burglary tools, and theft by unlawful taking over $500. Alexander also faces a third-degree burglary charge for his alleged role in the burglary of a vacant home in Benton earlier last month. He’s being held in the Marshall County Jail on a $5,000 cash bond.
