County badge.jpg

     Gregory McClure- On April 6, Gregory McClure, 30, Sheldon, was arrested on a St. Clair County warrant charging him with two class D felony charges of resisting arrest by fleeing- creating a substantial risk of serious injury/death to any person, and resisting arrest for a felony. Bond is set for $20,000 cash surety.

Gregory McClure

     The charges stem from a investigation the previous day when a St. Clair County deputy attempted to make a traffic stop on a vehicle for speeding on Highway 54. McClure was driving a 1991 Buick Riviera eastbound on Highway 54 and failed to yield to the deputy. During the chase the vehicle increased in speed and crossed the double yellow line forcing oncoming traffic off the road.  The vehicle traveled over 20 miles into Hickory County with speeds reaching in excess of 100 miles per hour.

     Hickory County deputies and Missouri State Highway Patrol assisted with the call and spike strips were deployed. The vehicle’s tires were deflated. McClure exited the vehicle and fled on foot from multiple law enforcement officers. After a short foot chase and struggle McClure was taken into custody and transported to the St. Clair County Jail.

     One of the original charges stems from an investigation in July 2013 at a residence on NW 801 Road, Osceola. During the investigation St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office deputies and members of the Mid Missouri Multi Jurisdiction Drug Task Force found Mitchell to be in possession of two glass pipes that contained a white powder that field tested positive for methamphetamine.       

     The other original charge stems from an investigation in September 2014 when a St. Clair County deputy assisted the Appleton City Police Department with a call regarding an alleged assault that occurred near Appleton City.

During the investigation a .22 caliber rifle was located by a deputy. Johnson unlawfully possessed a firearm due to his previous felony conviction of burglary in the second degree in February 2013.
