St. Peters man enters guilty plea in theft case

Tuesday, November 19, 2002

For not living up to a promise he made to the owners of Crosnoe Gold and Silver in Cape Girardeau, Clifford W. Dunn, 40, of St. Peters, Mo., will spend the next four years in prison for felony stealing.

Dunn pleaded guilty Monday to stealing $8,000 the store owners entrusted him with to buy a collection of rare coins from a St. Charles, Mo., dealer, said Cape Girardeau County Prosecuting Attorney Morley Swingle. Instead, Dunn pocketed the cash and never went back to the store.

Dunn also faces two felonies for writing bad checks in Cape Girardeau County.
