Incident Reports:

December 11 at 2:58 p.m. LCSO responded to a location in Utica on complaint of a careless and imprudent driver who had been confronted by a resident there about his driving and reportedly cussed out the citizen.  The deputy made contact with the alleged driver who was confrontational with the deputy.  Multiple attempts were made to de-escalate the situation but the man refused.  The person was identified and a report is being submitted to the prosecuting attorney for consideration.

December 18 about 6:44 p.m. LCSO and Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the 13000 block of LIV 206 on a disturbance.  Investigation shows multiple people present with several who had been drinking.  Argument over a potentially stolen wallet.  Situation resolved and no arrests required as parties separated.

December 21 at 2:40 p.m. LCSO began an investigation of a fraudulent scam where a rural resident was called and informed he won a popular sweepstakes.  In order to claim the multi-million dollars prize and new pickup he had to mail a check to someone then wire thousands of dollars multiple times to a person (not in the United States).  Unfortunately this victim is out over $20,000 dollars and was conned into believing all this was true.

Brown, 20 and Madeline Grace Ellis, 18, both of Dawn for alleged felony possession of controlled substance.  Additional investigation is taking place involving the reported burglary and theft.  Mr. Brown is being housed at Caldwell County Detention Center in lieu of $5,000 bond and Ms. Ellis is being housed at Harrison County Detention Center in lieu of $5,000 bond.
