VERNON COUNTY, Mo. — Authorities with the Vernon County Sheriff’s Office arrested two people allegedly involved with a theft from a vehicle and fraudulent use of a stolen debit card.

Following a report of theft from a car in Deerfield, Missouri, on May 4th, investigators with VCSO discovered illicit use of a debit card by the suspects at local businesses. Detectives visited these businesses to obtain surveillance footage and determine the suspects’ identities from the footage.

The next morning on May 5th, a follow-up was conducted on W. Vernon St. in Nevada. At the residence, 38-year-old Alesha Reavis, of Lindsborg, Kansas, was brought into custody on multiple active Felony warrants for her arrest from the State of Kansas. Suspected methamphetamine was found within as well as stolen property.
