          Sheriff Scott Keeler reported deputies have made three warrant arrests and took reports of stealing, trespassing, and property damage during the first part of the week Feb. 20-23.

Arrest made after truck
is reported stolen in Appleton City

            Bryan Ferrel-On Feb. 23, Bryan Ferrel, 36, Osceola, was arrested on a St. Clair County warrant charging him with class D felony stealing a motor vehicle. Bond is set at $15,000.

Bryan Ferrel

            The charge stems from a St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office investigation on Feb. 21, when a St. Clair County deputy took a report in reference to a stolen vehicle at the Appleton City Feed Service on West Fourth Street, Appleton City. The store’s co-owner James Smith reported a white 2003 Ford F350 single cab with a black flatbed was stolen from the feed store. Smith estimated the value of the truck at $10,000. Video footage was obtained showing a suspect getting into the truck and taking off at approximately 12:09 p.m.

            In the morning hours on Feb. 22, Bates County Sheriff’s Office recovered the truck. It was towed to a secure location for processing. Evidence located by Bates County Sheriff’s Office at the scene assisted in identifying Ferrel who was later taken into custody in St. Clair County. Ferrel also had an arrest warrant from Bates County charging him with class A misdemeanor resisting arrest. Bond on that charge is set at $500 cash or surety.

Trespassing, property damage, and
stealing reported on Route EE

            On Feb. 19, a St. Clair County deputy took a report regarding trespassing, property damage and stealing on Route EE in the southwest corner of the county near the junction where  Vernon, Cedar and St. Clair meet. William Browning reported two large walnut trees were cut down by someone a year or two ago. The trees were located approximately a half mile off of the road along the back edge of a field.

            Browning stated he and his son went to the property on Feb. 19 and noticed someone has removed the logs. He noted the edge of the field was also damaged. One log was found along the access road to the field. It was hooked to a tree with a tow strap and a come-along. A red fiberglass ladder and a large roll of wire were also found at the scene. The value of the trees was estimated between $1,500 and $2,000. A suspect has been identified and formal charges are pending.

            Sheriff Keeler urges those with any related information to these cases or any others should contact the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office Tip Line, 417-646-5832, or email to
