  • One of the three men who ended up crashing their truck in a quiet Independence neighborhood following a high-speed chase Tuesday morning told police they were looking for money and chose a house at random.
    Jackson County prosecutors on Wednesday charged Duane Denagelo Hill, 37, of Webb City; Ali Anthony Hill, 21, of Kansas City; and Raymond James Taylor, 18, of Kansas City with first-degree burglary.
    Court documents show that the three men entered a home on Owens School Road, armed with guns and wearing ski masks and carrying duct tape.
    When the homeowner saw them enter, he yelled and called police. Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded and tracked the vehicle, with assistance from the Independence Police Department, and spotted it on Gudgell Road.
    Speeding past Blackburn Elementary School, the truck reached the crest of a hill on East 25th Terrace South, fishtailing and striking a street light pole. The men then fled on foot, and one of the suspects was caught quickly while the remaining two were captured later.
    Duane Denagelo Hill told police he pointed a stun gun at the window where he heard the homeowner yell at him, according to prosecutors.
    Bonds of $200,000 cash were set for each defendant.
