Cars Broken into in the Union Missouri Area

For the second week in a row, cars have been broken into in the Union Missouri area. According to the Union Police Department, over ten vehicles had items stolen from them. On Sunday September 30th, Union police stopped a vehicle believed to be involved in the break-ins on Kennedy Street. The driver of the vehicle, 19-year-old, Alexander Hinson of Union, was found to be intoxicated shortly before fighting officers. Hinson spit into the mouth of an officer and then claimed to be HIV positive. He was transported to Mercy Hospital in Washington and a search warrant was obtained for his blood because he refused to cooperate with officers. Another suspect, 19-year-old, Kenneth Hochstatter, also of Union, was a passenger in the vehicle. Hochstatter admitted to participating in the break-ins. Two other passengers in the car have charges pending against them. Hinson is being held on a $35,000 bond.
