Sedalia Police officers conducted a warrant check in the 400 block of West 6th Street Tuesday morning (Jan 31). Officers made contact with a resident at the front door, who said she would bring the suspect to the front door. While officers waited, the suspect attempted to escape out of a side window on the house. When that didn't work, the suspect attempted to run out the back door, but saw an officer, and went back inside. Police then took the suspect, 32-year-old Tonya J. Burcham into custody. Dispatch confirmed that Burcham had four warrants. Burcham was arrested for the warrants, including resisting arrest, and being a fugitive from justice. She was placed on a 24-hour hold in the Pettis County Jail.
