Kirksville Police have arrested a La Plata man in connection to a stolen vehicle from a residence on Thousand Hills Trail. Officers arrested 29-year-old Jonathan Zeigler of La Plata yesterday (Thur.) for multiple charges. The Adair County Sheriff’s Office previously took a report on Sunday for a stolen 2003 silver Toyota Camry. The vehicle was located by Kirksville Police on Tuesday in an alley in the 800 block of East Jefferson Street in Kirksville. Zeigler fled in the vehicle after striking a parked police vehicle. Officers were able to locate the vehicle last night in the 1400 block of East Washington Street. Zeigler was spotted inside a house and arrested for leaving the scene of an accident, tampering with a motor vehicle and possession of a controlled substance. He is being held at the Adair County Detention Facility, pending the filing of criminal charges with the Adair County Courts.
