News Release for Dec. 30, 2013-Jan. 6, 2014 

     During the week of Dec. 30- Jan. 6, St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office deputies took reports related to burglary and fraud.
     Sheriff Scott Keeler said deputies responded to a burglary in progress in Osceola on New Year’s Eve and a man was arrested on three felony charges, first degree burglary, assault/attempted assault on law enforcement and resisting arrest.
     The sheriff noted several individuals with active St. Clair County arrest warrants were added to the “Most Wanted” list on the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office website, Keeler urged citizens to check the website frequently for updates.  

 Deputies respond to burglary in progress

     On Dec. 31, Darrell Stevens, Jr., 34, Osceola, was arrested after deputies were called to a burglary in progress at the Earnest Burwell Jr. residence at 250 Boundary Street, Osceola. Deputies were dispatched to the residence at 11 p.m. with information the suspect had gained entry. When deputies arrived on scene, they located Stevens standing outside attempting to enter the residence through a broken window with Burwell pushing Steven’s back each time he would lean into the residence. Stevens was bleeding and had several lacerations from broken glass.
     The investigation revealed Burwell allegedly hit Steven’s with a six-foot long walking stick after he attempted to gain entry to Burwell’s residence through the window. Sheriff Keeler explained Steven’s attempted to flee and resist deputies while being taken into custody. He was transported to Sac Osage Hospital, Osceola, for treatment of his injuries received while attempting to gain entry into the residence.
     On Jan. 1, Steven’s was released from the hospital to the custody of deputies and was booked into the St. Clair County Jail on several charges related to the incident. On Jan. 2, a felony arrest warrant was issued for Stevens charging him with first degree burglary, a class B felony; assault/attempted assault on law enforcement, a class C felony; and resisting/interfering with an arrest for a felony, a class D felony. Bond was set at $10,000 cash or surety. He was arrested on the warrant on Jan. 4 and is currently being held in the jail.

Fraud report taken

     On Jan. 3, a deputy took a fraud report from Paul Gary, Lowry City. Gary reported receiving a telephone call from a debt collector regarding a $900 loan that he allegedly obtained through Cash Net Installment in April 2013. Gary stated he never received a loan from the company. A suspect was named and the investigation is ongoing.
     Sheriff Keeler urges citizens with information concerning any cases to contact the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office, 417-646-2565

Bond is set at $15,000 in each case. The charges stem from an incident on Nov. 8, 2013 when an attempt was made to cash fraudulent checks at Hawthorn Bank, Osceola.
