LIVINGSTON COUNTY SHERIFF
October 14, 2011
Sheriff Steve Cox
1. On October 12, we responded to a call of a residential burglary in progress near Highway 190 and Old 190. Deputies located a juvenile suspect and contacted the individual’s parent(s) and the juvenile officer. Investigation continues and reports are being submitted to the juvenile authorities.
2. On October 12, we responded to a call of an alleged window peeper at a location in Utica. The investigation resulted in the arrest of Troy Justin Callahan, 36, Excelsior Spring, for alleged trespassing and possession of stolen property. Mr. Callahan was incarcerated in the Livingston County Jail. On the morning of October 13, we served a Livingston County arrest warrant on Mr. Callahan for alleged probation violation and the Court has initially denied bond.
3. This week all the LCSO sworn staff received advanced firearms training with their assigned handgun, assault rifle, and shotgun. Training was POST certified. Training took place in Livingston County.
4. The LCSO is seeking tips from the public on the whereabouts of 3 fugitives wanted on Livingston County Arrest Warrants:
a. Kenneth Michael Tillson, 42, is wanted for alleged class D felony of Sex Offender Registration Violation. Mr. Tillson had previously registered as a sex offender with this office at a location in the 200 block of Cowgill. Mr. Tillson has since moved from that location and has failed to notify this or any other sheriff’s office. Investigation suggests Mr. Tillson may now be homeless and residing somewhere in Livingston County and living in a tent. (ARRESTED)
b. Colton George Duncan, 27, Chillicothe, has arrest warrants for Alleged Failure to Appear in Court on original charges of Domestic Assault 3rd degree 2 counts, Possession of Marijuana, and Hindering Prosecution with a total bond of $6,000 cash. (ARRESTED)
c. Zackery Ryan Kerns, 23, Chillicothe, for alleged Failure to Appear in Court on an original charge of Domestic Assault in 3rd Degree, bond is $1,000 cash.
If you have information on the whereabouts of any of these men, please do not take action other then reporting the information to the Livingston County Sheriffs Office at 660-646-0515 or your local law enforcement authority.
5. On October 13, we transported 2 men to the Missouri Department of Corrections in St. Joseph on Parole Violation Warrants:
a. Jason Michael Reeter, 38, Brookfield.
b. James Russel Utley, 50, Chillicothe

7. On October 11, we responded to a call of a suspicious vehicle in the Mooresville area. The responding deputy subsequently discovered a vehicle driving erratic and without headlights. The driver allegedly failed to stop for the deputy for quite some distance. The investigation resulted in the arrest of Terrance Dean Breeze, 33, Mooresville, for alleged Driving While Intoxicated.
8. On October 13, we responded to a report of a domestic violence call in Avalon. Investigation resulted in the consensual search of a residence and the seizure of a small amount of marijuana. No evidence was found to support any arrest for domestic assault. A report is being submitted to the prosecuting attorney for consideration of charges.
9. On the early morning of October 13, a deputy responded to a location on highway Z where a car/deer collision had taken place. The vehicle had left but the deer was partially in the roadway and was put down.
10. We ask motorists to keep in mind that during this time of year the deer are more active, which translates to a significant number of car/deer collisions. If you experience a car/deer collision there is no need to report this to law enforcement unless someone is injured or damage to other property takes place.
11. Currently we have 35 people incarcerated in the Livingston County Jail, 8 of which are female detainees.
12. If you have any information on these or other crimes, please call us at 660-646-0515.
13. Please remember that an arrest warrant is only a mere allegation and all persons are innocent unless and until proven guilty in a Court of law.
