On October 05 we began an investigation into a stolen grain truck with about 600 bushels of soybeans taken from private property in the western part of Livingston County the evening of October 04 or morning of October 05. The grain truck was later recovered near Lock Springs in Daviess County and the beans had been taken. Investigation continues.

The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office is completing an investigation of a detainee who is reported to have damaged the floor of the padded cell and destroyed a mattress yesterday. The same detainee allegedly urinated and placed body fluids all over the mattress and onto the torn area of the floor causing additional problems for cleaning and repairs. The individual was in the padded cell due to maximum security needs. A report and photos have been submitted to the Livingston County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office for consideration of additional criminal charges.
A detention officer working this past weekend was alerted that 2 male detainees were allegedly encouraging another male detainee to commit suicide over the weekend. The male receiving the harassment was moved to an area away from these men and had no intentions of harming himself or others. A disciplinary action hearing will take place with one or both of the men accused of trying to compel the victim to end his life.
In an unrelated matter a detainee was transferred to HMC last night via ambulance after a detention officer found the individual had tied an object around his/her neck in apparent attempt to do self harm. Full investigation shows reasonable suspicion the subject was attempting gain attention in order to be released from custody. Instead the individual was treated at HMC and released back into our custody with medical clearance. We have since applied for Court orders to transport the person to a lock down treatment facility.
Today we transported Tye Joseph Evans, 24, Wheeling and Joel Tracy Kellison, 36, Chillicothe to the Missouri Department of Corrections in St. Joseph on Missouri Parole Violation Warrants.
