A potentially volatile scenario Thursday ended with the apprehension of one individual who was arrested for the criminal offense of Burglary of the First Degree.
The situation began at approximately 10:00 AM Thursday morning when the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department received a 911 call from an individual who lives off of Springfield Road just south of Waynesville. The caller told dispatchers that several burglars had just broken into his home, and he was barricaded in a bedroom attempting to hide from the suspects.
Within minutes, law enforcement officers from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department, the Waynesville Police Department, along with the Missouri State Highway Patrol were on scene and found the resident shaken, but unharmed. A search of the house revealed a burglary had occurred but the suspects had already left. The victim reported the theft of some property but felt very fortunate due to the number of firearms and ammunition in the home, which were within easy access to the suspects. The victim and his family were in the process of moving when the burglary occurred.
While responding to the emergency call, a Waynesville patrolman observed a person of interest leaving the area who matched the suspect’s description. A follow-up investigation based on the officer’s observation subsequently lead to the detention of one suspect. Before day’s end, detectives from the sheriff’s department had developed significant information and evidence, which lead to the arrest of one individual, along with the recovery of some stolen property. The suspect is now being held in the Pulaski County Jail pending formal charges.
According to Pulaski County Sheriff Ronald Long, this situation could have easily resulted in someone being seriously hurt. “With the suspects discovering the owner was indeed home, along with a number of visible firearms in the home, this property crime could have easily resulted in serious injury to either the victim, or suspect. I feel the victim was very fortunate in this situation,” advises Sheriff Long.
In addition to this case, the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department is aggressively working on other burglary and theft cases throughout the county. Last week a Dixon resident was arrested and charged with Receiving Stolen Property, resulting from property being recovered from a recent burglary. This arrest occurred as part of the ongoing Community Policing effort by sheriff deputies. Numerous other burglary/theft investigations are also underway, which will lead to more arrests in the very near future. 
Included in these burglaries cases are a multitude of firearms being taken, which has Sheriff Long and other law enforcement officials on high alert. “We are concerned about all crimes in our county but firearm thefts take a top priority with us,” the sheriff states. “This type of theft has the potential to evolve into additional violent and bodily injury crimes, so the stealing of guns will not be tolerated,” says the sheriff.  Long also feels that thieves fail to realize the serious consequences of stealing firearms, not just criminally but if caught in the act with a gun in-hand by an owner or law enforcement officer.
Sheriff Long concludes by conveying it is law enforcement’s primary concern to protect the citizens of our county and these criminals are placing us in a vicarious position. Therefore, if you have information regarding gun thefts or any other Pulaski County crimes, please call their Tip-Line at: 573.774.7948

Sneak Peek Sheriff's View / Sheriff Ron Longs first article.
« on: January 14, 2013, 09:10:39 PM »
By Pulaski County Sheriff Ronald Long

I welcome this opportunity to reach out to the citizens and visitors of Pulaski County as the new sheriff of our community. Early in his tenure, retired sheriff J.B. King began this weekly column, which for years kept our community abreast of criminal events throughout this area, along with the internal functions of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department. Upon being elected, one of the first and many requests I had from the local media and county residents was to continue the weekly article from the sheriff’s office; therefore, it will go on.
I wish to start by saying a huge “thank you” to the county voters for having the confidence to elect me as the new Pulaski County Sheriff. What an honor this appointment is, and I can assure you that each day I will work diligently to deliver the most professional and community friendly law enforcement agency possible.
Beginning day one after the November election, the pace has been fast and furious to take over the sheriff’s seat on January 01. First of all, I am “very” gracious to retired Sheriff King for immediately offering an open door to me for this transitional period. We spent many hours covering topics from personnel and budget, to patrol and jail functions. In addition to the retired sheriff, I also appreciate all of the assistance and support from other county officials, along with our county commissioners, especially during these first two weeks in which my 2013 budget is due. With the current economic times, budgeting is certainly a challenge but I am fortunate to be working with commissioners who are as concerned about the needs of our community as I am.

I recently spent two weeks in Jefferson City attending the new sheriff’s school, which is sponsored by the Missouri Sheriff’s Association. Despite spending three decades in law enforcement, it still amazes me of all the responsibilities involved with this office. Fighting crime is just one faction of the many duties of a Missouri Sheriff. I can think of only a few elected positions that carry the responsibilities of being sheriff, along with the severe repercussions if not legally and appropriately administered.   Despite the demands, I am excited and very much looking forward to the years ahead as your sheriff.

Along with some new faces, you are also seeing changes with operational functions of this agency. We are making a concentrated effort to patrol the rural areas of our county where a lot of our burglaries and property crimes are occurring. Our deputies realize the severity of this problem and have been working diligently to resolve it. Recently, a variety of arrests in Pulaski and neighboring counties are aiding us in solving property crime sprees that have been occurring in the Crocker and Dixon areas. Some forthcoming news articles will covey in more detail about these endeavors.

Two recent appointments to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department will allow us to elevate the investigative aspect of this agency. On January 01, Mr. John Groves was selected to assume the role of Chief Deputy. John is a retired Army Colonel who has years of distinguished service in both civilian and military organizations. One aspect of John’s background includes extensive work in criminal investigations.

To supplement the addition of Major Groves, reserve deputy Don Hayden has been appointed Chief of Detectives. Mr. Hayden has a broad background in criminal investigations, and is internationally renowned in the field of juvenile death and assault cases. Our agency has several other reserve detectives who are second to none that will help us in the ongoing fight against crime. In additional to tackling current cases, the PCSD has/will also open some older “cold cases”, which will be aided by the efforts of retired Sheriff J.B. King, who has elected to continue serving our community as one of our reserve detectives.

During my campaign, many of you probably recall the mention of using reserve deputies to better serve our community. I have to brag at this point, because the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department has a reserve unit whose talent and experience could be envied throughout our nation. I have to thank Uncle Sam for bringing some of our talented deputies to this area. Also, Mr. Johnny Burgess was recently named as our Reserve Captain, who is already doing an outstanding job in coordinating efforts to supplement all divisions of our agency. Our department’s tactical unit (PCERT) is also comprised of reserve deputies, some of which have been tactical instructors for our United States military.

It’s time to wind my first article down but I can’t do so without once again mentioning the fact that one primary goal of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department is to implement a community policing program, which will allow Pulaski County citizens the opportunity to meet or be part of their sheriff’s department. Therefore, within the next two weeks I will begin scheduling town-forum style meetings in every town in our community, which will allow each of you to meet with me and voice your concerns, comments or just come by and say hello to your sheriff and some of our department representatives. Until then, stay safe and make an effort to do something positive for your community.

And don’t forget to visit us at:

See you next week.

Sheriff Ronald Long

« on: September 01, 2012, 03:31:33 PM »
Officer Matthew Gorans has been disciplined in the past for using excessive force and was once named in a lawsuit filed by a man who was injured in a confrontation with police. The city settled the suit for about $250,000. On Wednesday, officer Jesse Zilge was placed on administrative leave after he was identified as the officer shown in a video kicking Eric Hightower during his arrest Tuesday in the city's North End. Zilge and another officer, who was not identified by police, also are seen slamming Hightower's face into the hood of a squad car. A friend of Hightower captured the arrest on video, and another friend put it on YouTube on Wednesday. Police would not disclose whether Gorans is seen in the video or what information led to his paid leave. The other 12 officers who responded to the arrest remain on active duty.

Local News / Rodeo in Crocker forced to not sell beer.
« on: July 27, 2012, 03:16:35 AM »
Justin Smith ATTENTION CROCKER AND SURROUNDING AREAS AGAIN; Due to the MINORITY of people being upset that we were going to sell beer at our Rodeo in Crocker. We were forced to CANCEL THE BEER GARDEN. Let me explain, the few people who were upset got lawyers involved and basically forced us to shut it down, or the stock contractor, Mr. Bob Kasper, would suffer the consquences of losing money. I can not justify making someone else, trying to earn a living, to lose out because of a few hipocrits in my town. I do, however, ask that everyone still please attend the Rodeo as all proceeds will go to repair the playground equipment. I apologize that I could not win this battle for my community, but, I assure you the war is not over. So again, please attend and plan on eating dinner with us at the park. We will still have our concession stand open and that will be, now, our only source of income. I also want to thank all that have supported our efforts to improve our community.

State News / Highway Workers Now Protected Under 'Move Over' Law
« on: July 21, 2012, 02:47:42 PM »
Highway Workers Now Protected Under 'Move Over' Law   JEFFERSON CITY, MO - For the Missouri Department of Transportation employees who spend their days on state highways, work just got a little safer.

Governor Jay Nixon signed Senate Bill 611 into law on Monday, July 9, which expands the 2002 "Slow Down and Move Over" law that protects law enforcement and emergency response vehicles parked on the side of the road.

The new law, which takes effect Aug. 28, requires motorists to slow down or change lanes when approaching these vehicles, and now also includes MoDOT vehicles parked with amber and white lights flashing.

"We are committed to the safety of all Missourians and our MoDOT workforce," said MoDOT Director Kevin Keith. "I am grateful to the Governor and Missouri Legislature for recognizing the importance of protecting MoDOT workers in the same way as the Highway Patrol and other emergency responders."

According to Keith, with the drastic drop in MoDOT's construction budget, the department is virtually in a maintenance-only mode. That makes the work MoDOT maintenance forces perform more important than ever as the department attempts to take care of Missouri's existing system of highways and bridges.

"About 2,400 MoDOT employees work on Missouri highways every day, often in high-volume traffic," said MoDOT State Maintenance Engineer Beth Wright. "Their number-one priority is to work safely, and we appreciate every effort to help get them home safely every day."

Passage of the law was the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission's highest priority during the 2012 legislative session. Since 2000, four MoDOT employees have been killed on the job. Coincidentally, MoDOT and the Transportation Employees Association of Missouri will dedicate a new memorial for fallen MoDOT workers at 9:30 a.m. on Monday, July 16. The memorial is located on the Capitol grounds, near MoDOT's Central Office building in Jefferson City. The memorial is a tribute to the 128 employees who have been killed in the line of duty since 1946, and was completely funded with private donations.

So I was wondering why you can only buy three boxes of Nite Time Cold medicine. So I looked into it.
 Dextromethorphan (DXM or DM) is an antitussive (cough suppressant) drug. It is one of the active ingredients in many over-the-counter cold and cough medicines, such as Mucinex DM, Robitussin, NyQuil, Dimetapp, Vicks, Coricidin, Delsym, and others, including generic labels. Dextromethorphan has als...o found other uses in medicine, ranging from pain relief to psychological applications. It is sold in syrup, tablet, spray, and lozenge forms. In its pure form, dextromethorphan occurs as a white powder.[2]

 DXM is also used recreationally. When exceeding label-specified maximum dosages, dextromethorphan acts as a dissociative hallucinogen. Its mechanism of action is via multiple effects, including actions as a nonselective serotonin reuptake inhibitor[3] and a sigma-1 receptor[4][5] agonist and the action of its major metabolite dextrorphan as an NMDA receptor antagonist, producing effects similar to those of the controlled substances ketamine and phencyclidine (PCP),[6] as well as the active metabolite 3-methoxymorphinan, which produces local anesthetic effects in rats with a potency above dextrorphan but below dextromethorphan itself.[7]

  Search warrant, The Rolla Police Department, South Central Drug Task Force and Phelps County Sheriff’s Department served a search warrant at the Pleasure Zone. We were looking for illegal synthetic marijuana, synthetic meth, and other synthetic drugs that are called bath salts, incense, plant food etc. We recovered about $100,000 of the products that will have to be sent to the lab for testing. We have had kids steal their parent’s credit cards and purchase these products; one used their parent’s card to buy $1,700 worth of the product another bought $250.00 worth. This is a serious problem, we have had overdoses and serious health issues from these products.

National News / Firecracker blows dogs upper jaw off..
« on: January 11, 2012, 12:05:45 AM »
  Some kids placed strong firecracker in the mouth of this animal and made sure he... could not open it. The world is like this. To these kids it must have been a macabre fun for a few minutes and then they continued with their life like nothing happened.

To this animal, his life ended during those minutes, with a pain so deep that is better to forget.

If you are against the mistreatment of animals, share this so that more people see what we are capable to do and how inhumane we could be.

Friends, I'm really sorry if this picture hurts you, I got hurt while posting too. I'm sharing this because of that I hope if some one near you tries to do these kind of things, you will at least try to tell them that this is really a harsh. Will you?
