St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office News Updates June 11-15, 2018 

Sheriff Scott Keeler reported deputies made two arrests and recovered a missing person’s body during the week of June 11-15, 2018. 

Warrant Arrest



Jerry Eaton

     Jerry Eaton- On June 14, Jerry Eaton, 46, Osceola, was arrested on multiple St. Clair County warrants charging him with a class C felony removal of VIN number from a motor vehicle, two counts of a class D felony tampering with a motor vehicle in the first degree, class D felony burglary in the second degree, class E felony resisting or interfering with arrest for a felony, and a class E felony property damage in the first degree. Total bond is set at $40,000 cash only.
     These warrants stem from incidences from 2015 through 2018.



Tammy Lambert

     Tammy Lambert- On June 13, Tammy Lambert, 54, Kansas City, was arrested by a St. Clair County deputy on a class D felony possession of a controlled substance and a class B misdemeanor for prostitution. Lambert was booked and released pending formal charges.
     The arrest comes after a St. Clair County deputy was dispatched to the Café Shop in Appleton City in reference to a man pulling a gun on Lambert.
     Upon arrival, the deputy made contact with Lambert. She stated she was picked up in Liberty and brought down here by a male subject, James Johnston, for a visit. Lambert stated Johnston was trying to have sex with her, but she refused. Johnston got upset and left the room. Lambert stated Johnston came back and grabbed her face trying to get her to have sex again. Again Lambert refused. Johnston went to his bedroom and came back with a pistol and pointed it to her face and told her to leave, which she did.
     The deputy asked if Lambert would be willing to show him where Johnston lives. Lambert agreed. The deputy informed Lambert that before getting into the car he would search her and her belongings for weapons or illegal contraband. Lambert agreed. During a search of her purse, the deputy found two clear bags with a white residue and a broken piece of a glass pipe. Lambert stated the residue would test positive for “crack”.
     The deputy and Lambert went to Johnston’s residence and the deputy tried to make contact with him. There was no answer at the door.
     While the deputy was transporting Lambert to the jail, she stated Johnston was so upset because he had offered her $200 cash to have sex with him and she refused. Lambert stated this is not the first time Johnston had paid for sex.
