On Monday, July 11th, at approximately 3:05p.m. Officers with the Hannibal Police Department were dispatched to the 1200 block of Center Street for a possible burglary in progress. A resident of the area witnessed a white male drive a silver van the wrong way on Center Street, stop in front of a home, and kick the front door open. Upon Officers arrival they located the silver van with the driver’s side door open. The van had been reported stolen from the 400 block of West Terrace the previous day. A white male exited the residence and attempted to flee. He was quickly apprehended and taken into custody. The male provided a name to officers but refused to provide his date of birth. The Missouri State Highway Patrol responded and utilized a mobile fingerprint reader. The male was identified as Colton B. Bonar, 31 of Hannibal. Bonar had a felony warrant from Jackson County Missouri and a felony parole warrant from the State of Missouri. Bonar was taken to the Marion County Jail. Additional charges may be filed at a later date.
