STERLING – A Tampico man who recently was charged in an armed robbery is now accused of burglarizing a local bar.

Jackie Ferguson, 32, is in the Whiteside County Jail on a $500,000 bond.

Earlier this month, he was charged with armed robbery along with Jacob L. Wetzell, 26, also of Tampico. Officials aren't releasing details about the crime, but said more arrests are pending.

On Tuesday, the Whiteside County Sheriff's Department announced that Ferguson also is charged in connection with the burglary of K's Korners near Sterling, which occurred in the early-morning hours of Feb. 12.

Charges will be filed against two other suspects in the crime, one of whom is a 17-year-old boy, according to a news release.
