Police chase down teenager in wake of shop burglary

Joplin police chased down a suspect in a burglary at a barber shop Monday night and arrested him in the parking lot of Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar.

Matthew W. Lund, 19, of Joplin, was taken into custody minutes after a break-in at the Heath Sisters barber shop at 2814 E. Seventh St. He has been charged with second-degree burglary.

Officers responding to an 11:42 p.m. alarm at the business spotted a man in dark clothing running south from the shop toward some railroad tracks. He was spotted a second time near Seventh Street and Highview Avenue before finally being corralled in the restaurant parking lot at 430 S. Geneva Ave.

Stewart said Lund had a flashlight and a multi-tool device in his possession when he was arrested, and a crowbar was found along his presumed path. An undisclosed amount of money believed to have been stolen from the cash register of Heath Sisters also was recovered, Stewart said.

A window was broken out and a door was damaged during the break-in at the business.
