Man Arrest, Released, Then Arrested Again
On Saturday, August 18th, a Drew County Sheriff’s Deputy received a report of a suspicious looking male walking around a residence located on Bowser Road. When the deputy arrived in the area he found Brent Bowden, age 21 formerly of Sheridan, sitting on the side of the road with several credit cards and stolen drivers licenses lying around him and the bag that he was carrying. The bag also contained several items that had been reported stolen from approximately four vehicles located in the Bowser Road-Burton Road area. Bowden was arrested and transported to the Drew County Detention Facility. He was taken for a first appearance on Monday, August 20th, before District Court Judge Ken Harper who released Bowden on his own recognizance.
On Wednesday, August 22nd at around 2:30 AM, Bowden was arrested again by the Monticello Police Department after he was found attempting to steal a vehicle from Dickerson Auto Sales and then trying to flee the scene of the crime. He is currently being held in the Detention Facility on a $250,000 bond.
