Joplin Police arrested Mohr Saturday at Ernie Williamson Music, 925 South Range Line Road, with guitars stolen from a Newton County church and drug paraphernalia, according to the probable cause statement from Officer Joshua Dykstra.
At the time of his arrest, Mohr was already out on bond awaiting trial on seven felony counts involving possession and trafficking in heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine. The JPD arrested Mohr eight days ago following an armed robbery at 7th and Moffet on robbery, armed criminal action, and possession of a controlled substance. The prosecuting attorney's office has not filed any charges in connection with that arrest.
The probable cause statement on Mohr's most recent arrest is printed below:
On 9-3-2016, I was dispatched to suspicious activity at 925 South Range Line Road, Joplin, Jasper County MO (Ernie Williamson Music). Upon arrival, I was advised by an employee that Ace Mohr was in possession of guitars that were previously reported as stolen from a church burglary in Newton County, Missouri. The guitars were reported stolen on 9-2-2016.
The victim, Darrin Brower, reported the musical instruments as stolen during the burglary investigation and they were placed into MULES as stolen by serial numbers. Brower responded to the scene and identified the guitars Mohr was in possession of as the ones that were stolen during the burglary. Darrin Brower stated the guitars were valued at $5,600.
Before conducting a search incident to arrest of Mohr's person he made the statement that he had a needle in his front left pocket of his jeans. I found a capped needle in Mohr's front left pocket. From my training and experience, I recognized this needle as drug paraphernalia. Also, a narcotic dog alerted to the driver side door of the van Mohr was driving. While searching the van, I found a needle in the door panel of the driver side door that field tested positive for methamphetamine.
Mohr was arrested and transported to the Joplin City Jail and the guitars were removed from MULES as stolen and both needles were placed into evidence.
Judge Hensley set Mohr's bond at $10,000, cash only.
