JACKSON, Mo. -- A man accused of stealing a van from his relatives and then racing through two states to avoid police waived his preliminary hearing Wednesday.

Richard Ryan Gilmore, 29, of rural Jackson is charged with first-degree burglary in a July 12 home invasion on West End Boulevard in Cape Girardeau. He also is charged with second-degree burglary, tampering with a motor vehicle and driving while revoked, and a laundry list of misdemeanors after reportedly stealing a van from the family-owned C&G Feed and Supply in Jackson and leading police in Missouri and Illinois on a high-speed chase for several hours July 23.

Gilmore's trial is set for Sept. 3 before Circuit Judge William Syler.

He remains in the Cape Girardeau County Jail on $530,000 bond.
