LIVINGSTON COUNTY SHERIFF
January 05, 2012
Sheriff Steve Cox
1. The LCSO has remained very busy this week working on beginning of year duties, reports, budget work. We have continued with a variety of criminal investigations, assisted other agencies, handled calls for service, and handled Court security.
2. On December 28, we arrested Jennifer Marie Lindsey, 33, Chillicothe, on a Livingston County arrest warrant for alleged class D felony of Hindering Prosecution. Bond was originally set at $2,500.
3. On January 04, we began an investigation of theft and property damage at a location in Ludlow. The victim reported that items had been stolen from her vehicle and someone had used a sharp object to scratch entire side of her car. Investigation is continuing.
4. We are currently working on completing a burglary and theft investigation. We hope to have this completed next week and anticipate taking at least one person into custody.
5. On January 02, we began an investigation at a location on Liv 2313 where two purses were stolen from two different vehicles. Investigation continues.
6. We have completed an investigation of alleged child abuse. Last month we checked the well being of a child at a Chula address. This week we completed that investigation with the Division of Family Services also agreeing there was insufficient evidence to support any allegation.
7. We have completed an investigation of alleged stalking and harassment. A female reported that an ex-husband had been stalking and harassing her. After we made contact with the reported suspect the alleged victim requested no further action at this time.
8. On January 02, we responded to a location in the north part of Livingston County as a resident reported a spouse was suicidal, armed with one or more firearms, and had left the home and walked into a large tract of timber and brush. The Missouri State Highway Patrol assisted the 2 deputies at the scene. Officers attempted to make contact with the individual without success. Additional staff was then summoned and more steps were then taken to search for the suspect. That individual was subsequently found in an old cellar. The individual was found to not be suicidal and was merely attempting to avoid conflict with the spouse.
9. On December 30, we investigated a report of a run-a-way juvenile. The parent reported the child had taken camping equipment and the family vehicle. The juvenile was later located and the juvenile authorities were involved with the situation as well.
10. On December 28, we began an investigation of burglary and theft from a building on Liv 369. The victim reported missing tools, gloves, oil, filers, starting fluid, gasoline and gas cans, weed eater, and deep cycle battery. Investigation continues.
11. The Livingston County Jail currently has 33 people in custody, 11 of which are female detainees.
12. If you have any information on these or other crimes then please call us at 660-646-0515.
