Man charged after vehicle pursuit

Robert Theiss
September 26, 2012 - The St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney's office has issued warrants on Robert K. Theiss, 41, of Bonne Terre, for one count of felony attempted stealing; one count of felony first-degree property damage; one count of misdemeanor assault of a law enforcement fficer; and one count of Felony Resisting/Interfering with Arrest.

Theiss is being held on $35,000 bond.

The charges stem from a Sept. 15 incident in which county police officers responded to the scene of a stealing in progress at 7900 Becker Road in south county, according to a news release.

Officers observed Theiss loading items from a shed in the back yard into what was later identified as a stolen vehicle, the release stated. He fled in the vehicle at a high rate of speed after observing the officers.

Theiss drove his vehicle into the side of a St. Louis County Police vehicle at the intersection of Fine and Becker roads before leading officers into a pursuit down Telegraph Road into Jefferson County, the release stated.

He was taken into custody at a later date.
