Kansas City man arrested on burglary, resisting arrest and weapons charges
Cape Girardeau police arrested a Kansas City, Mo., man Thursday night on charges of burglary, resisting arrest and unlawful use of a weapon.
Police were called to Jaspers, 10 S. West End Blvd., because the alarm had been tripped. When they arrived around 12:30 a.m., they found a smashed window and what appeared to be blood on the floor.
An officer approached Thurman D. Johnson, 26, to question him about the apparent burglary, according to the arrest warrant.
Cape Girardeau Sgt. Barry Hovis said Johnson had been loitering on the corner near Jasper's and had a fresh wound on his hand. When questioned, Johnson pulled back his sleeve to reveal a "shank," or sharpened metal rod, taped to his arm, and threatened officers when they tried to arrest him, Hovis said.
