Local Man Arrested as Out-of-State Fugitive

A resident of Trenton was arrested as an out-of-state fugitive in Grundy County Tuesday morning.

A report from the Missouri Highway Patrol says that 31-year-old Derek E. Baker was charged with five counts of possession of child pornography.

Grundy County Sheriff, Rodney Herring, said by email Derek Brown is originally from the Cameron, MO area and he used to be a traveling welder. The charges are from July 2019 from Dodge County, Nebraska. The arrest warrant was just issued this month. Brown has already waved extradition and is awaiting transport to Dodge County, NE where he will appear for criminal proceedings.

He’s being held without bond in the Grundy County Jail.
