Knox City Couple Arrested for Trespassing, Investigation Leads to Burglary Charge

Knox County, MO – Wednesday, March 13, 2019 – Two Knox City residents have been arrested for trespassing and theft.

According to court documents, warrants were issued in Knox County for the arrests of Donna Saulmon, 38, and Roy Rudicil, 63, of Knox City on Saturday, March 9, for misdemeanor trespassing.

A subsequent investigation by the Knox County Sheriff’s Office led Knox County Prosecutor Corey Moon to file an additional Class D felony burglary charge against Solomon in the days to follow.

According to the probable cause statement filed in the burglary case, Case No. 19KN-CR00032, Saulmon is accused of using a screwdriver to break into a Knox City residence on Turtle Avenue and stealing a television before allegedly being driven away from the scene by Rudicil, on Friday morning, March 8.

Saulmon allegedly pawned the television at a West Quincy, MO, pawn shop less than four hours later for $130 under the name Donna Rudicil.

Saulmon is being held at the Adair County Jail on a $5,000 cash only bond for the burglary charge and a $1,000 cash only bond for the trespassing charge.

Rudicil is being held at the Lewis County Jail on a $1,000 cash only bond for trespassing.

A criminal charge is merely an accusation. Defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in court.
