Warrant arrests

Peter Creasy

           Peter Creasy- On Dec. 16, Peter Creasy, 23, Appleton City, was arrested at the St. Clair County Courthouse on a Vernon County warrant for failing to appear in court on a seat belt violation. Bond was set at $10.

Mark Buce

            Mark Buce- On Dec. 14, Mark Buce, 28, Deepwater, was arrested on a St. Clair County warrant charging him with class C felony receiving stolen property and class A misdemeanor resisting/interfering with arrest detention or stop. Bond is set at $15,000 cash or surety.

            The charges stem from an incident the previous day when a deputy attempted to make a traffic stop on a pickup truck near NE 501 Road and Highway CC, Osceola. When the deputy activated emergency lights the truck slowed down like it was going to stop then accelerated and continued on NE 501 Road. The truck travelled for approximately one mile before stopping.  Buce, who was driving the vehicle, was taken into custody. A check of the vehicle revealed it as stolen from Benton County.

            Disclaimer: Arrest records are public information. Any indication of an arrest does not mean the individual identified has been convicted of a crime. All persons arrested are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
