News Release
Recovery of Stolen Firearm
Pulaski County Sheriff J. B. King
Dec. 23, 2009

The morning of Dec. 23, 2009, the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office received major assistance from the Missouri State Water Patrol with the investigation of a Pulaski County drug and burglary case. Since the case in question is still an active investigation few details will be released at this time.

The investigation started when a road deputy began an investigation of a local burglary. At this time the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office does not have a paid detective but does have a number of specially trained reserve deputies who function as detectives. These reserve detectives were working on an unrelated drug case when they received creditable information that a rifle stolen in this burglary had been thrown off the Riddle Bridge into the Gasconade River on Highway Y in Pulaski County.

The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office requested assistance from dive team members of the Missouri State Water Patrol. The morning of 12-23-09 these Missouri State Water Patrol dive team members entered the 46 degree water of the Gasconade River and within a few minutes were able to recover a rifle from the river.

Quote by Sheriff J. B. King, “We greatly appreciate the work of the Missouri State Water Patrol with the recovery of the stolen rifle. I do not know how difficult it is to dive in 46 degree water but I do know I would not enjoy this experience. Our thanks for a job well done to the Missouri State Water Patrol dive team members who assisted us today.”

Warrant Arrests for Drug Offenses
Pulaski County Sheriff J. B. King
Dec. 23, 2009

On Dec. 22, 2009, at approximately 5:50pm members of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office assisted by detectives from the Osage County Missouri Sheriff’s Department arrested two suspects on active warrants as they were leaving a local motel. The Osage County detectives had been tracking the suspects for several days and had received a tip that they were at the local motel.

The information was thought to be valid and additional Pulaski County deputies from the PCERT team were called out to assist with the arrest. In an effort to make sure the suspects were in the hotel room the Osage County detectives and Capt. Bill Anderson of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office went to the motel to determine a room number and check for any other problems that might interfere with the arrest. While these deputies were at the motel the suspects left their room and entered a vehicle to leave the area. The Osage County detectives immediately recognized the suspects and as they attempted to leave the parking lot the three deputies on scene blocked their exit and made the arrest without incident.

The suspects were identified as; Shawn Michael White, age 35, of New Haven, Missouri and Christina Sue Morris, age 41, of Owensville, Missouri. White was wanted by the United States Marshals Service on an active warrant and Morris had active warrants from Osage and Gasconade County.

Both suspects are being held in the Pulaski County jail pending pickup by the jurisdictions that are holding the active warrants.

News Release
Pulaski County Deputy Receives Missouri Medal of Valor.
Pulaski County Sheriff J. B. King
Nov. 20, 2009


Pulaski County Sheriff J. B. King is pleased to announce that on Thursday November 19, 2009, Gov. Jay Nixon presented the Missouri Medal of Valor to seven public safety officers from across the state for extraordinary acts of bravery and heroism that saved the lives of Missourians during 2008. Gov. Nixon made the presentations of the state's highest public safety award in his Capitol office and commended the officers, who were accompanied by their families and colleagues from their departments. The Governor was joined at the ceremony by Department of Public Safety Director John M. Britt and by Col. James Keathley, superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol and Pulaski County Sheriff J. B. King.


In his remarks Gov. Nixon said, “These officers, who come from across the state, represent the very best of Missouri's public safety community," Gov. Nixon said. "Each act of bravery was different, but in every instance, these officers acted selflessly without concern for their own safety and helped save the lives of their fellow Missourians. I am proud to stand with them and on behalf of all Missourians, I thank them for their outstanding service and the fine examples they set of what public service can be."


"I am continually impressed by the dedication of the men and women of Missouri's public safety community," Gov. Nixon said, "They and their families sacrifice daily so that we can have better and safer communities across this state. All Missourians owe a debt of gratitude to the men and women who selflessly work to protect us."


One of the officers who were honored was Deputy Donald Hayden of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office. A brief summary of his actions was read to the audience before Gov. Nixon presented the medal.

“On June 10, 2008, Deputy Hayden ended a shooting rampage by a heavily armed suspect at a trailer court in Dixon by shooting the suspect. Deputy Hayden responded to a domestic violence assault inside a trailer, shots fired at a neighbor, and the bludgeoning of another neighbor with a pistol. The suspect had fled but was then spotted returning to the trailer court. To protect residents, Deputy Hayden drove toward the suspect and used his patrol car to block the suspect's vehicle. The suspect exited his vehicle and started firing. More than twenty shots were fired by Deputy Hayden and the suspect in a close-range gun battle. Deputy Hayden was shot four times as he ended the threat to the trailer court.”


The Medal of Valor is awarded annually by Missouri's Governor after recommendations are submitted by the Medal of Valor Review Board. State statute authorizes up to seven medals each year. Recipients must be persons serving a public agency, with or without compensation, as a firefighter, law enforcement officer or emergency personnel.


The nominating form states the Medal of Valor is awarded "to a public safety officer who has exhibited exceptional courage, extraordinary decisiveness and presence of mind, and unusual swiftness of action, regardless of his or her own personal safety, in the attempt to save or protect human life." State and local corrections, court and civil defense officers are eligible.
