A Jackson area man faces two charges in connection with the burglary which occurred at Rowdy's Smokehouse at 495 Ralph St. in Jackson during the overnight period of July 27-28.

Jackson Police have charged Jeremy S. Myers, 31, of 696 Pattonsville Road, Jackson, with felony-level counts of Safecracking and Breaking And Entering.

The charges were filed Aug. 28 in the Jackson County Municipal Court and a preliminary hearing was held on Tuesday, Sept. 5 with Judge Mark Musick ruling there was sufficient "probable-cause" evidence presented to bind the case over to the Jackson County Common Pleas Court. Myers continues to be held in the Jackson County Correctional Facility on a $100,000 bond.

Jackson Police previously reported that a forcible entry was made sometime after the restaurant closed on Thursday night, July 27 and before employees arrived the following Friday morning. Entry was made by breaking a window on the east side of the building. Police stated that an undetermined amount of cash was taken and that the investigation is continuing.

Rowdy's Smokehouse owner/operator Nathan Kitts posted a surveillance video clip of the alleged thief inside the restaurant on his personal Facebook page and asked the public's help in identifying him and also offered a $500 reward. Reportedly, there was quite a bit of response which aided the subsequent investigation.

The suspect seen on the surveillance videotape was disguised, but a Jackson Police Department investigator testified in the preliminary hearing that Myers' distinctive tattoos matched those of the suspect.
