Wanted Fenton man taken into custody after resisting arrest

(Fenton) The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 49-year-old Fenton man after resisting arrest on Thursday evening. St. Louis County Police reported on Wednesday, the same suspect burglarized a home in the Fenton Precinct. Responding officers contacted the victims who stated there was an adult male in their basement, and he pointed a firearm at the victims. The suspect then left the residence before the officers’ arrival. He was able to evade St. Louis County Police and was believed to be in Jefferson County on Thursday. Sheriff’s Office Spokesman Grant Bissell says one of their deputies witnessed a suspicious person walking along Gravois Road.

A second deputy then arrived on the scene. The suspect was wearing a surgical mask and was asked to remove it, and the deputy recognized him as the wanted suspect. The deputies then tried to place him under arrest and the suspect began resisting.

Bissell says that’s when a Jefferson County K-9 was released.

The suspect is identified as 49-year-old Marcus Rogers. He has outstanding warrants in both Jefferson County for “unlawful use of a weapon” and St. Louis County for “arson”. He faces robbery charges in St. Louis County and will likely be charged with resisting arrest and potential assault of a law enforcement officer for the Thursday night incident. He’s currently being held in the Jefferson County Jail without bond.
