Man gets probation in Lincoln University lock-down case
JEFFERSON CITY - A St. Louis man has been sentenced to two years of unsupervised probation in connection to a November 2015 lockdown of the Lincoln University campus.
The Jefferson City News Tribune reports that 19-year-old Zaccheus Griffin pleaded guilty to misdemeanor stealing and resisting arrested.
He was charged with felony second-degree burglary and felony resisting arrest. Under his probation, Griffin must complete a 16-day shock detention sentence.
Campus police reported that officers were called to a dormitory where a female student said she saw Griffin, who also was a student, enter her room and take $80 from her wallet.
Authorities say officers went to Griffin's room to speak with him and found a .22-caliber semi-automatic handgun and bullets in a gym bag. Authorities say he ran away, prompting the Jefferson City campus' lockdown.
