Tonight at our monthly officer meeting two of our officers received commendations.
On April 15th 2016, Officer Jeff Daugherty and Officer Christopher Corbit were on routine patrol. Officer Corbit identified a suspicious vehicle which upon further investigation turned out to be stolen out of Joplin Missouri.
During the course of the investigation and subsequent search warrant, three individuals were taken into custody on numerous felony charges. A sizable quantity of illicit drugs was recovered along with three firearms, one of which had also been reported stolen.
Due to their diligence and persistent endeavor to keep our community safe, they were awarded Officers of the month for April 2016.
