A Drew County man who allegedly pointed a gun at another person Sunday night was arrested Monday for aggravated assault, burglary, theft, fleeing, and a number of other alleged crimes.
Aaron Pamplin, 24, is being held in the Drew County Detention Center on a $50,000 bond.
Responding to a call Monday from a Drew County resident who reported that his home had been burglarized and a number of items taken from the home, Drew County Sheriff Mark Gober and his deputies went to Pamplin’s residence to question him about the burglary and theft. As they pulled up to the residence, Pamplin fled on foot. He was later found hiding in an abandoned trailer, according to a news release from the Drew County Sheriff’s Office.
Pamplin was taken back to his residence where the stolen property, a shotgun, and a metal pipe generally used for controlled substances reportedly were found.
Pamplin likely will be charged with residential burglary, theft of property, theft by receiving, theft of a firearm, fleeing, aggravated assault, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of a and firearm by certain persons. The aggravated assault charge stemmed from the previous night when it is alleged that he pointed a gun at an individual.
Circuit Judge Teresa French on Tuesday set Pamplin’s bond at $50,000.
