On Sunday, May 15th the Circuit Court of Marion County issued a warrant for Jaymes D. Gilbert, 23 of New London, charging him with nine counts of property damage. The charges stem from an incident that occurred on Saturday, May 14th, at approximately 4:15pm. Officers with the Hannibal Police Department responded to the 100 block of Broadway for numerous reports of property damage. A patron at B&B Cinema exited the business and saw Gilbert damaging their vehicle. As the police were being called to the scene Gilbert jumped into a dumpster. Officers contacted Gilbert and he exited the dumpster. Once out of the dumpster Gilbert attempted to flee. The Hannibal Officer and an off-duty Missouri State Highway Patrolman were able to subdue Gilbert. Gilbert was transported to the Marion County Jail where he remains on $50,000.00 cash only bond.
