Roberts faces three felony counts of burglary after allegedly stealing televisions, other electronic devices and even refrigerators. He remains jailed on a $6,000 bond.

Madison County officials say Roberts cut through a chain link fence that surrounds Self Storage in Godfrey and then broke into 28 storage units.

Officials say they have recovered some of the items, but that other items - including a tv, refrigerator, fishing equipment, professional wrestling DVDs, an antique chest of drawers, an oval mirror and a sewing machine - were all sold off.

The Madison County Sheriff's Department is asking people who may have bought the items to call 618-296-3000.

Officials say Roberts - easily recognizable due to the full-face tattoos - may have been working with an accomplice.
