Credit Card Left at Crime Scene Helps Solve Burglary

Officials with the Madison County Sheriff’s Department arrested Jared C. Carter, 28, after allegedly attempting a residential burglary. About 4:30 am on the morning of the incident, the home owner in the 2400 block of Becker Road, Highland, heard a noise at the door of his residence.

When he went to check the door, a credit card bearing Carter’s name was left in the door where the would-be burglar had fled.

Investigators said, Carter had been attempting to open the door’s lock with the use of his credit card. Leaving his credit card behind at the crime scene, Carter now faces residential burglary, after being further identified as a suspect in two other attempted residential burglaries on Cardinal Lane in Highland, both felonies, in Madison County Circuit Court.

Carter was detained in Madison County Jail in Edwardsville with a $60,000 worth of bail bond.
