BENTON, Mo. -- Following a rash of home burglaries in Chaffee, Mo., last week, three businesses in the city were broken into this week, according to the Scott County Sheriff's Department, resulting in the arrest of two more Chaffee men.

Kyle Myers, 22, and Michael A. Biler, 21, were arrested Thursday for allegedly breaking into two Chaffee insurance companies -- State Farm and Shelter Insurance -- and attempting to unlawfully enter a dentist office in Chaffee.

Myers has been charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, second-degree burglary, stealing and three counts of property damage. Biler is charged with second-degree burglary, stealing and three counts of burglary.

According to a news release from the sheriff's department, deputies were finishing the investigation of the home burglaries when the newest reports began to come in.

Sheriff Rick Walter said a search of the one of the suspect's homes led to the recovery of two firearms and other items reported missing in the business burglaries.

Three other Chaffee men were charged Monday in connection to a series of residential burglaries that occurred in the city recently.

Jay Anderson, 40, Charles Fleming, 22, and Ricky Stephens, 17, were charged individually with multiple counts of second-degree burglary and stealing. Walter said the trio was allegedly responsible for seven home burglaries in Chaffee.

Anderson, Fleming and Stephens are each scheduled to appear in court for their preliminary hearing March 30.
