On the afternoon of May 14th, Officers performed a subject check in the area of East 10th Street and south Hancock Avenue. A computer check through Dispatch confirmed the subject to have an active warrant for his arrest. The warrant was issued by Pettis County in May of 2024 after an incident in March of 2024. In the original incident, two males came into the Autozone store, 2601 West Broadway Boulevard. The two males had backed up a GMC Yukon to the store front, and then came inside while acting erratically. One male was asking what were noted as “odd questions” and the other kept walking through the aisles “acting jittery.” The subjects were later located at the Casey’s store, 1909 West Main Street. One male, the suspect, fled the scene shortly after Officers’ arrival. Several items were stolen, including hose clamps, antifreeze, battery terminal ends, and a fuse panel. The overall value of the stolen items was valued at $87.93. Dustin Eugene Galloway, 41, of Sedalia, was arrested for his warrant on charges of Stealing. Galloway was transported to the Petits County Jail pending a cash only bond of $250.00.

After the suspect failed to appear in court in March of 2024, a warrant was issued. Anthony Dwayne Bushnell, 31, Homeless, was arrested for his FTA warrant on original charges of Destruction of Non-City Property.

Monday evening, Officers took a report from Gretchen L. Harter of a dog bite in the 500 block of West Main Street. A dog arrived with an unknown subject and reportedly exited a vehicle through the window. The dog bit Harter and her dog, and then the suspect’s dog reportedly jumped back into the same vehicle with the unknown subject and left.


Officers initiated a warrant check in the 1800 block of South Vermont Avenue Monday afternoon. The homeowner told Officers the subject they were looking for was not there. During the course of the visit, the suspect jumped out of a second story window in an effort to avoid law enforcement contact. He was taken into custody. The warrant in question was issued in April of 2024. In the warrant, it was alleged the suspect had gone to his ex-girlfriend’s apartment, and the two began arguing. After she asked him to leave, he then began to yell outside and was pacing back and forth. The victim pushed her couch against the door to keep him from coming back into the house. While doing so, she looked towards her patio door and found the suspect coming through what she thought was a locked patio door. After he came through the door, he yelled again and eventually left the scene. Officers noted the enclosed first floor porch of the residence had waist high railings that had several spindles broken that happened when the suspect came over the railing. The venetian blinds were also broken where he had come through the blinds. Stewart Lashaun Workcuff, 37, of Sedalia, was arrested for his warrant on felony charges of Burglary in the 1st Degree. Workcuff was given a cash or surety bond of $15,000 and ordered to not have any contact with the victim.
