Nevada officers busy serving arrest warrants

Thursday, May 3, 2012

The Nevada Police Department reports that a team of officers has been taking steps to round up and arrest subjects with active warrants. Officers have executed several warrants by arresting eight individual fugitives in three days time. Officers say that this effort will continue.

Three individual officers have made the arrests since April 30. Sgt. John Millard arrested, Christina L. Barker on an assault warrant, Justin J. Goolsby on two resisting arrest warrants and a passing bad check warrant and also arrested William A. Newton for a felony warrant out of Cole County, Mo.

Officer Lukas Gibson arrested, Michael S. Brigman Sr. on an outstanding Missouri Department of Corrections parole violation warrant.

Officer Josh Westerhold arrested, Lyn B. Horst on two failure to appear warrants from Bates County, Mo., Justin Byram on a felony probation violation warrant, Walter A. West on two failure to appear warrants and Paul K. Johnson on a warrant for a violation of an exparte order.

It is the goal of the Nevada Police Department to provide those services to our community to ensure the safety of our residents so they feel as safe and protected as possible. In a step toward that effort, Nevada police officers will continue to quickly apprehend those persons with active warrants within our city limits.

Captain Casey Crain states, "Nevada Officers are doing a great job in getting fugitives off of our streets in an effort to protect those people who work and live here. This will be an ongoing effort to quickly round up fugitives that are choosing Nevada to hide."
