News Release for Nov. 26-Dec. 3, 2013
Deputies from the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office took several reports during the week of Nov. 26-Dec. 3. St. Clair County Sheriff Scott Keeler said the reports included stealing, property damage and identity theft. He noted deputies also made felony and misdemeanor arrests.
Wheatley arrested on three outstanding warrants
On Nov. 30 Rachael Wheatley, 35, Osceola, was arrested in Henry County on three
outstanding St. Clair County warrants, class C felony burglary in the first degree, felony probation violation and failing to pay fines on a misdemeanor charge of driving without a valid license.  
The burglary charge stems from an incident on Aug. 4 at Moccasin Trails Antique Store, 3790 NE 13 Highway, Osceola, when over $2,000 in jewelry along with over $1,000 in cash was reported stolen. The warrant was issued on Aug. 14 and bond was set at $10,000 cash or surety. The warrant for a probation violation was issued on Aug. 16 and bond was set at $10,000 cash or surety. The misdemeanor warrant was issued on Sept. 10 and bond was set at $136.50 cash only.   
Arrest for leaving the scene of accident and driving while intoxicated
On Nov. 28 a deputy responded to Main Street, Lowry City, in reference to a motor vehicle accident. It was noted a passenger vehicle driven by an “older male” struck vehicle belonging to Michelle Johnson and left the scene. It was learned Fredrick Radtke, 65, Roscoe, had recently dropped off an individual in the area. A vehicle matching the description with moderate damage was located at Radtke’s residence. 
The investigation led to Radtke’s arrest for a class D felony of leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident and misdemeanor driving while intoxicated. He was transported to the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office for processing and later released. Formal charges are pending.
Stealing reports
On Nov. 28 a deputy responded to a residence on Main Street, Collins, in reference to a report of stealing. Clint Wombles reported an individual stole his coveralls on Nov. 21. He said the coveralls contained a Visa debit card and a .22 caliber starter pistol. Wombles stated the individual who stole his property was in the St. Clair County Jail. The deputy contacted the jail to check and see if any property was checked in by the individual matching the description and there was not. The starter pistol was valued at $50 and Wombles was unaware if there were any unauthorized transactions on the debit card.
On Nov. 27 a deputy was dispatched to a residence on NE Highway 82, Quincy, to take a stealing report. Malvin Crowl stated someone kicked in his shed door and stole a refrigerator, a glass top stove and a small freezer. The appliances were in the shed due to the residence being remodeled. The deputy observed approximately three broken boards on the shed door along with other evidence. A request for prosecution was signed and the case is under investigation. 
Sheriff Keeler urges citizens with information concerning any of the cases to contact the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office, 417-646-2565.
Property damage
On Nov. 29 a deputy took a report of property damage on NE 1148 Private Road.  Vera Russell and Amanda Burns reported damage to windows on three residences. The deputy observed small round holes in the windows along with BBs. They wanted their windows repaired, but did not want to press charges.
The deputy made contact with two juveniles and a parent at a nearby residence. A BB gun was located and the deputy explained the law regarding criminal charges. The deputy explained to the parent the need for children to be supervised while shooting guns.
Report of identity theft
On Nov. 27 a deputy took a report of identity theft from Joyce Kankey, Lowry City. She noted Chase Bank called asking if she applied for a credit card on Nov. 8. She stated she did not and talked to the fraud department. Kankey was advised to file a report with law enforcement.
Misdemeanor charges filed
On Nov. 25, a criminal summons was issued for Bradley Sell, 41, Niangua, charging him with two misdemeanor charges, first degree trespass and second degree property damage. The charges stem from an incident a deputy from the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office investigated on Nov. 16 on property owned by Gary Scott east of SW 1251 Road and SW 276 Road. Scott reported Sell was trespassing and found him sitting in a vehicle on his property. Scott noted a large tree was cut to gain entry onto his property. A criminal summons was issued and a court date of Dec. 20 is set in the cases.

Nurse at St. Clair County Jail achieves professional certification 
Sheriff Keeler reported the nurse at the St. Clair County Jail, Dawn Jones, LPN, recently achieved professional certification in the field of correctional health care. To become a certified correctional health professional (CCHP), Jones demonstrated mastery of national standards and the knowledge expected of leaders working in this field. She joins over 3,000 correctional health care professionals nationwide who have earned this distinction.
St. Clair County Jail Administrator Major Sammy Bowden offered his congratulations to Jones. He said in the last eight years, only 38 nurses in the state have taken and passed this certification. He noted CCHP is highly regarded as a symbol of accomplishment and self-improvement. It promotes correctional health care professionals’ knowledge, understanding and application of standards and guidelines essential to the delivery of appropriate health care in the correctional environment; their role in delivering that care; the basic legal principals underlying their practice; and their ethical obligations.
