Former Northeast Missouri Man Sentenced to Prison for Stealing

A former Northeast Missouri man was sentenced to prison yesterday for stealing. According to a press release from Matt Wilson, Prosecuting Attorney of Adair County, 40-year-old Jonathan Prebe of Kansas City and formerly of Knox County, was sentenced to serve five years in the Missouri Department of Corrections with probation being denied. The stealing charges arose out of an investigation of a stolen vehicle from an Adair Countyl business on September 12, 2020. Prebe was arrested in December 2020 and was then released on bond. On April 12, the Adair County Prosecuting Attorney was made aware of new charges, against Prebe, being filed in Livingston County for allegations of law violations earlier this month. After a hearing on Adair County’s Motion to Revoke Bond, a warrant was issued for Prebe’s arrest. He turned himself in on that warrant yesterday before appearing in Circuit Court with judge Russell Steele.
