Three arrested in armored car heist


Farmington, MO. – Farmington police have arrested three people suspected of stealing an armored car, thanks in part to crime scene pictures taken by a local farmer.

Police say the pictures led them to arrest Scott Ian Mackinnon of Desloge.
He led investigators to Eugene Ford of St. Louis County, and Ford's daughter, Leann Dotson of rural Jefferson County.

The arrests were announced today.

All three suspects are charged with first-degree robbery and felony stealing over $25,000.

Bond is set at $250,000 for each suspect. Police say they recovered
stolen cash and a revolver used in the robbery.
