Felon Arrested at Budget Inn
Pettis County Deputies and the Pettis County K9 Unit received an anonymous tip Monday night about the whereabouts of a suspect with a warrant for their arrest.
The tip stated the suspect was hiding in a room at the Budget Inn, 4710 South Limit Avenue in Sedalia. Pettis County Deputies, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, and the K9 Unit responded to the motel room.
A short time later, a female occupant of the room went back inside the room an escorted Brian E. Tripp out of the room. Tripp was taken into custody without incident.
Tripp was arrested for a Saline County Failure to Appear warrant on original charges of felony Driving While Revoked (2nd or 3rd Offense) with a $1500 cash or surety bond.
An arrest warrant from Pettis County had been issued that same day for Tripp on charges of felony Burglary in the 2nd Degree, felony Property Damage in the 1st Degree, and Stealing.
Tripp was transported to the Pettis County Jail pending charges.
