WENTZVILLE, Mo. (AP) — Three men are jailed and accused of stealing an electric guitar and other items from the suburban St. Louis home of rock 'n' roll legend Chuck Berry.

The St. Charles County Sheriff's Department says power washers and dozens of used car batteries were also taken, along with part of a fence.

Officials say it isn't clear when the items were taken or if they were all taken at once. Deputies say the stolen items have not yet been recovered. Formal charges have not been filed.

Berry was one of rock's pioneers with early hits that included "Roll Over Beethoven," ''Sweet Little Sixteen" and "Johnny B. Goode." The 85-year-old singer still performs monthly at a club in University City, another St. Louis suburb.
