Conviction in Child Molestation Case
Pulaski County Sheriff J. B. King
April 13, 2008
During the month of July 2006, the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department Detective Division, Crimes against Children section, was advised of an alleged criminal violation involving a small child, which occurred in the Crocker, Missouri, area. An intense investigation by the Sheriff’s Department resulted in the filing of one count of First Degree Statutory Sodmy and one count of First Degree Child Molestation against a Crocker, Missouri resident.
The subject charged was Vance Lee Sinyard, age 38, of Crocker, Missouri. His case was later moved to Phelps County Missouri on a change of Venue motion. However the Pulaski County Prosecutor retained control of the case. On April 11, 2008, at the conclusion of a jury trial at the Rolla Courthouse a Phelps County jury found him guilty on both charges. The jury recommended a sentence of 15 years on the First Degree Statutory Sodmy charge and a ten-year sentence on the First Degree Child Molestation charge. A court hearing for the actual sentencing by the Judge has been set for May. Sinyard remains in custody at the Phelps County Jail in Rolla, Missouri.

Drug Arrest
Pulaski County Sheriff J. B. King
April 13, 2008
At approximately 9:30pm on April 11, 2008, two Pulaski County Deputies on routine patrol were going east on I-44 near the Buckhorn overpass when they noticed a motor vehicle with Texas plates that was also going east. The vehicle was traveling below the speed limit and was weaving on the road. The Deputies followed the car to the St. Robert overpass where the vehicle exited I-44. The car came to a complete stop at the yield sign and a small child was observed walking around the back seat. The Deputies stopped the vehicle in front of the BP station.
Upon contact with the driver, Ian D. Waters Sr., age 32, of Bryan, Texas, attempted to exit the vehicle. He was told to remain in the car. When he was later asked to step from the vehicle he became uncooperative and refused to remove his hands from his jacket pockets. A minute later he tried to flee on foot. After he was taken into custody Deputies removed two small plastic bags from his hand that contained a white powder substance believed to be cocaine.
A passenger in the vehicle, Erick Childs, age 26, of Bryan, Texas, was also taken into custody and both subjects were taken to the Pulaski County jail. While at the jail the passenger attempted to scatter a white powder substance behind a chair in the jail. This powder tested positive for cocaine.
A statement of probable cause was sent to the Pulaski County Prosecutor. The PA filed one count of distributing, delivering or manufacturing a controlled substance or possession with the intent to distribute a controlled substance on Ian Waters. His bond was set at $30,000.00.
The passenger Erick Childs was charged with one count of possession of a controlled substance. His bond was set at $15,000.00. At this time both subjects are held in the Pulaski County Jail.

Arrest of Interest
Pulaski County Sheriff J. B. King
March 27, 2008
At approximately 9:00am on 3-26-08 the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department received a phone call from a citizen who reported a suspicious vehicle parked near the Laquey Post Office. The citizen was able to provide the Sheriff’s Dispatcher with enough information to determine that the vehicle had probably been reported stolen in Camden County.
Deputy Melanie May was sent to the Laquey Post Office to check the vehicle. Dep. May was able to determine that it was the correct 2004 Chevrolet van that had been stolen. A message was sent to the reporting authority the Camden County Sheriff’s Department reference the vehicle recovery. A short time later a Camden County Deputy contacted Dep. May and advised her that the vehicle had been stolen a short distance from the location where a suspect in a rape investigation had been able to elude Camden County Deputies after a foot pursuit.
The stolen vehicle was processed and latent fingerprints were located. The Camden County Sheriff’s Department was able to provide the name of a possible suspect in this case. They thought the suspect might have family members living in the Laquey area. Shortly after this the Laclede County Sheriff’s Department contacted Dep. May with information on a house owned by a relative of the suspect. Dep. May received permission from the homeowner to search the vacant home.
At approximately 12:30pm several members of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department and one Missouri State Trooper entered the home and located the suspect. Items from the stolen van including the vehicle keys were found in the home.
The afternoon of 3-26-08 the suspect and evidence items were transported by the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department to Camden County and released to the Camden County Sheriff’s Department for further investigation.

Shooting Incident
Pulaski County Sheriff J. B. King
March 26, 2008
At 7:45am on 3-26-08 the Pulaski County 911 Communications Center notified the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department of a physical disturbance in progress in the area of Howard Lane near Missouri Route 28. As the Deputies were responding to the scene the 911 Center gave an updated report that at least one person had been shot.
The first Deputy on the scene advised at 7:52am that he had one gunshot victim on the ground and that he had secured possession of the firearm. An additional victim with knife injuries was reported a minute later. Both injured persons were transported by the Pulaski County Ambulance Service to the General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital for treatment.
At this time it appears that the incident was the result of a domestic disturbance and involved a single-family unit. All parties involved in this incident have been accounted for and no person involved in the incident is still being sought by the Sheriff’s Department.
The investigation continues and news updates will be released when possible.

Sneak Peek Sheriff's View / MRPC Law Enforcement Grants
« on: March 13, 2008, 01:23:42 PM »
MRPC Law Enforcement Grants
The subject of law enforcement grants has been in the local Pulaski County news lately and has created a sense of public interest in the field of law enforcement grants. Before an agency like the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department applies for a grant there must be a careful review of the grant. The majority of grants are for a specific purpose and each normally has specific responsibilities that the grant receiver must obey. Thus you must carefully study the grant to determine if the benefit given in the grant to your agency is worth the cost to your agency for the grant. Many grants require a cash match and we do not have a budget procedure for the cash match in Pulaski County.
Pulaski County falls under the jurisdiction of the Meramec Regional Planning Commission (MRPC) for many of the local grant opportunities that apply to law enforcement. At the beginning of this past grant year Pulaski County was fortunate to have Eastern District Commissioner Bill Farnham as the Chairman of the Commissioners Committee and Sheriff J. B. King as the Chairman of the Sheriff’s Committee. The grants that were available for this grant year have now run the full cycle and are about to be awarded. Sometime later this year the next grant cycle will start.
For the current year there were five subject topics under which you could write a grant proposal. Each specific topic had a set of guidelines attached that had to be satisfied in the grant proposal. The broad topic grant subjects were as follows,
  • Agricultural Risk Mitigation Strengthen Interoperable Communications Capabilities at the Regional Level. Medical surge mobile module units and patient/victim tracking. Mass Sheltering, volunteers, and donations. Strengthen PSAP’s 911 and Interoperable communications as it relates to 911 and emergency response.
Out of these five topics the only one that would apply to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department would be the second topic of Interoperable Communications. However that topic was off limits for the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department. In 2004 the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department received a full one hundred percent replacement radio grant. Every radio in the department was replaced with the latest top of the line Interoperable radio.
During the committee discussions for the 2007 radio grants the MRPC committee members ruled that the departments with the worst radio equipment would get the top chance for 2007-year radio grants. Thus the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department was not eligible for the Interoperable radio grant. When you consider the number of departments that applied and the total available funding for the radio grants that was a reasonable decision.
But, there is more to this story. With the stroke of a pen in 2005 the federal government adopted the new “P-25” radio standard and all of the brand new radios we received in 2004 became obsolete. The P-25 standard requires us to upgrade one hundred percent of our radios to that standard by the year 2013. So in the future we will have to seek out other radio grants. This will take years to accomplish because there are still hundreds of agencies that are in worse shape than us with their radio equipment.
During a recent meeting of the Pulaski County Commission a mention was made of free vehicles that were to be given away as mobile command posts to Missouri agencies. This is an example of taking a close look at a grant before you apply. According to the fine print of the grant there were only two vehicles to be given away. One was a Chevrolet Suburban and the other was an enclosed box truck the size of a Greyhound bus.
The large size mobile command post was fully equipped with every known radio, telephone, computer, and digital data transmission device available to the law enforcement field. The value of the truck and equipment was a cool $500,000.00 and the single lucky grant winner gets it all for free.
But there are three simple little requirements the grant winner has to obey. First the agency would be responsible for the cost of all maintenance and repair for the life of the vehicle. Since nobody had any idea of the cost to operate the unit or the frequency of mechanical breakdowns there was no estimated cost listed for this requirement.
The second point was that the grant winner had to keep every radio, computer software, and telephone license agreement in full force. The estimated cost for the license factor alone was $8,000.00 to $9,000.00 per year. And third since there will be only one such unit in Missouri the grant winner must share the unit on a minute’s notice with every agency in Missouri that had a bad disaster week. Once their emergency was over you would retrieve the unit and fix it up for the next agency loan.
The Chevrolet Suburban was also fully equipped in the same way as the bus and had a value of just over $200,000.00 with the same rules and restrictions on use. Would such a grant be of value to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department? Yes it would, but the cost would be more than we could handle so there would be no point in completing a grant application for these vehicles. There are Sheriff’s Departments and Police Departments in Missouri with the financial soundness to handle these requirements and for the lucky department that wins the grant they will get a heck of a deal for their money.
In closing I hope I have helped the citizens of Pulaski County acquire a little better understanding of grants and how they apply to law enforcement. We shall continue to seek out grants in the future that would be useful for our department.

Local News / Topic: Special Finance Report From Sheriff J. B. King
« on: February 29, 2008, 09:53:50 PM »
Topic: Special Finance Report
To: The Citizens of Pulaski County &
The Pulaski County Commission
From Sheriff J. B. King
Date: Feb. 28, 2008
After the completion of three full years as the Pulaski County Sheriff I have had a good chance to observe the operation of the Sheriff’s Department as it relates to the issue of Pulaski County finance. I would like to use this report to bring forth a few issues with Pulaski County finance that I have observed. I have reached the conclusion that the finance figures that are available for the County to spend are not sufficient for the proper operation of the County. The ebb and flow of the sales tax receipts that create the general revenue fund which pays for the Sheriff’s Department operations leads to shortages in funding at critical times. This is very different from the property tax funding that supplies the Road and Bridge Department.
During the past four full budget years the County has been unable to supply a single cent for the purchase of any vehicles for the Sheriff’s Department. The citizens of Pulaski County have told me many times that they expect and demand Deputies respond promptly to their homes when an emergency situation develops. That is not an unreasonable demand on their part. Since we only have 17.5 paid officers who could respond we must be able to supply them with safe dependable vehicles and equipment. The ability to call out additional resources in an emergency is very critical to our operation. If this single issue does not jump out at you as a failure of County government to meet the needs of its citizens then I do not know how to explain the issue to you.
During the past three years of actual operation I have been contacted by many of the vendors and suppliers who provide the Sheriff’s Department with equipment and supplies. Their concern has been the past due payment of bills they have submitted. Many of these concerns were accurate because the supply of money in the general revenue fund was not sufficient to pay all of the bills that month and someone had to wait. The Pulaski County government operates the same way you do as a private citizen. If the bank account does not have sufficient money in it at the end of the month then you do not pay the bill. This leads to all sorts of problems.
We have a desperate need in the jail for additional jail staff members both from the standpoint of officer safety and the reduction of legal liability for Pulaski County as it relates to the inmates and the operation of the jail. For three years this request has not been addressed because we do not have the money.
We need a second process server to assist with the service of legal papers and that position has not been filled because we do not have the money. We need additional officers, including full time narcotic officers and that will not happen because we do not have the money.
In short the Sheriff’s Department has been denied basic and necessary equipment and resources because the money was not there. The loss of basic and proper service affects the citizens of Pulaski County who expect such service from the department.
How thin is the money supply? I would like to cite a Pulaski County document from Nov. 30, 2007. On that date the general revenue fund had listed total yearly revenue, including carryover from 2006, of $2,827,366.70. The total expenses for the same period were listed as $2,831,321.92 leaving a balance in the general revenue fund of $1,528.76 on Nov. 30, 2007. If we had not had the carryover amount of $5,483.98 from the 2006 budget we would have been in the red on that date.
I do not consider myself a financial genius but a balance of $1,528.76 on a fund with $2,831,321.92 in expenses seems to me to be thin, very thin.
How serious is the situation? As part of the 2008 budget process the Pulaski County Commissioners called a meeting with all elected county officials in an effort to balance the budget. Employee layoffs were to be considered at this meeting. If you are thinking about employee layoffs then the situation is serious. Since most county departments need additional people any employee layoff simply reduces their service level to the citizens of Pulaski County from whatever department lost the employee. Most departments gave up money for supplies and equipment that they needed for proper operation to help balance the 2008 budget. Once again the citizens of the County were subject to reduced service because of these budget cuts.
How do we address this problem? Simple answer we find other ways to raise revenue for the County. And this brings me to the point of this report. The County must consider a plan that would benefit both the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department and Pulaski County government as a whole.
The plan starts with a request to the voters of Pulaski County to approve a ½ cent law enforcement sales tax for the operation of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department. This will generate approximately $1,800,000.00 and to that we add $700,000.00 from the current budget assigned to the Sheriff. This would produce a grand total of approximately $2,500,000.00 for the operation of the Sheriff’s Department and jail.
With that amount all needs could be accomplished. The new road officers needed could be hired. The process server and narcotic officers needed could be hired. This would allow the purchase of sufficient patrol cars. The additional jail staff employees that we need could be added. In short the $2.5 million budget would allow the Sheriff to meet all of the critical needs of his department and would give the employees of the department the resources needed to take care of the citizens of Pulaski County.
As a bonus the remainder of the money from the Sheriff’s former budget would then become available to the members of the Pulaski County Commission for the other critical areas that they need to fund.
How would this plan work out? I will use the 2008 budget year as an example. We will assume that the ½ cent sales tax was fully in place for the prior year and all funding is at full strength for the year 2008. The total budget for the Sheriff for 2008 was set at $1,349,202.00. If this plan were in full operation then $700,000.00 of that would have been used for the Sheriff’s Budget and $649,202.00 would have been left over for the use of the Pulaski County Commission.
The financial concept of this plan is very simple. It would benefit the Sheriff’s Department and the general government functions of Pulaski County for many years. It would slow the slide into financial despair by the county. This plan would have prevented the talk of employee layoffs during the 2008 budget cycle.
The reality is that the ½ cent sales tax would amount to one cent for each $2.00 spent in retail sales. If you were to drop buy the local convenience store and spend $25.00 your added sales tax would amount to twelve and one half cents. And everyone who lives, works, or travels in Pulaski County and makes any purchase in Pulaski County would pay the sales tax. Right now Pulaski County government or legal subdivisions of the county provide services to Ft. Wood residents and the most common revenue we receive from them is from the sales tax for off post purchases.
As the elected leadership of Pulaski County it would be up to the members of the Pulaski County Commission to take the necessary steps for the future. Place the ½ cent law enforcement sales tax on the ballot this year with the other elections we already have to fund. As citizens of Pulaski County the final choice would be up to you. Do you want adequate service from your County government or do you want to save a few extra pennies to carry in your pocket?
You will receive the service level that your taxes support.

Arrest in Sex Assault case
Pulaski County Sheriff J. B. King
Feb. 10, 2008
On Feb.9, 2008, officials at the General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital notified the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department of a victim in a reported sexual assault case who was seeking treatment at the hospital. A Pulaski County Sheriff’s Deputy made contact with the victim at the hospital for an interview. Following that interview members of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department Detective Division assumed control over the investigation. When the Detectives received information that a member of the military was a suspect in the case the Detectives requested the assistance of the United States Army’s Criminal Investigation Division.
The officers working together were able to locate additional witnesses to the incident and interview them. The interviews determined probable cause to believe a felony crime had been committed. A Pulaski County Sheriff’s Detective located the suspect vehicle driving on the city route in St. Robert and stopped the car at 1:46am on 2-10-08. Additional units, including St. Robert City Police Officers responded to back the Detective up. The suspect was taken into custody without incident. The suspect was taken to the Pulaski County jail.
Following additional investigation a statement of probable cause for a charge of forcible rape and forcible sodomy was sent to the Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney. In addition a request for a search warrant to examine the scene of the crime at 20981 Lacombe Road in rural Pulaski County was completed. The search warrant was granted and was served at 9:20am on 2-10-08.
Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney Deborah Hooper filed both charges and the suspects bond was set at $100,000.00 cash. The suspect, Terry W. Riddle Jr., age 28, of Co. F, 787th Military Police Battalion, remains in the Pulaski County Jail pending the posting of bond.
At this time no details of the alleged assault will be released. The victim of this sexual assault will not be identified.

Health News / Flu on Fort Wood
« on: February 06, 2008, 03:46:14 AM »
The Fort Leonard Wood community is seeing an unusually high number of Influenza-like illness.  We would strongly encourage all areas on post to make sure that their folks have had the Influenza vaccination or Flu mist. The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses.
The flu spreads in respiratory droplets caused by coughing and sneezing.
It usually spreads from person to person, though occasionally a person may become infected by touching something with virus on it and then touching their mouth or nose.  It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. Since there are no known cures for the flu, prevention must be the goal.  The most effective way to prevent flu is to get the flu shot. Other prevention measures include:
1. Wash your hands using soap and warm water.  Use hand sanitizer if a sink is not available.
2. Don't Cover Your Sneezes and Coughs with Your Hands.
3. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.
4. If a tissue isn't available cough or sneeze away from other people and into your elbow.
5. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
Contributing factors include but are not limited to the following:
  Close quarters in the barracks
  Lack of adequate sanitation in the barracks
  No chance for Soldiers in training to complete personal hygiene tasks such as showering due to lack of shower time.
  Pushing soldiers that aren't feeling well to continue to maximize their exercise.
 Enforcement of:
          Guidelines as posted above
          provide masks to those that are coughing
The environmental section will be contacting POCs to do "spot checks" in the barracks to ensure that we are maximizing our support of our Soldiers in training.

Pursuit and Drug Arrest
Pulaski County Sheriff J. B. King
Jan. 28, 2008
At approximately 35 minutes after midnight on Jan. 27, 2008, a Pulaski County deputy on routine patrol noticed a vehicle traveling east on I-44 from the 145mm that had improper taillights. When the deputy got behind the vehicle he saw that the car was crossing over the centerline and driving off the right edge line. As the vehicle reached the Buckhorn overpass and exited onto the ramp the deputy turned on his overhead emergency light to stop the vehicle. The vehicle failed to stop.
The vehicle began to run stop signs, make turns without signals, and continued to refuse to stop. The chase continued onto the outer road, Richland road and finally onto Roscoe Road. The vehicle stopped in the driveway of 25580 Roscoe Road. The driver exited the vehicle and began to run away from the car. Following a short foot pursuit the Deputy was able to catch the driver and attempt to arrest him. A struggle started that was complicated by the actions of a female passenger from the vehicle who attempted to interfere with the arrest. The deputy was able to complete the arrest of the driver after the use of a chemical spray. Responding backup officers took the female passenger into custody.
During the incident the deputy had watched both people in the car throw items into the grass or under another vehicle in the driveway. These discarded items proved to be small plastic bags containing methamphetamine, marijuana, and morphine sulfate pills. In addition other drug paraphernalia devices were located. Additional drugs were found during a search of the vehicle.
A statement of probable cause was sent to the Pulaski County Prosecutor requesting charges from this incident. One count of possession of a controlled substance was filed on each of the people in the vehicle. Warrants were issued for both subjects.
The persons charged in this incident were; Tony J. Trotter, age 48, of 25580 Roscoe Lane, Waynesville, Mo. and Cynthia R. Kelley, age 32, of 25580 Roscoe Lane, Waynesville, Mo. Judge Colin Long sent an appearance bond on the charge of drug possession for both subjects at $50,000.00 cash. Both are currently held in the Pulaski County Jail.

Murder Case Plea
Pulaski County Sheriff J. B. King
Jan. 23, 2008
At approximately 10:00am on Jan. 23, 2008, John David Brown entered a plea of guilty in Pulaski County Circuit Court to one count of murder in the first degree. Brown appeared in front of Pulaski County Circuit Judge T. L. Storie for the plea. The murder charge stemmed from a shooting death that occurred in August 1985 in Pulaski County. The shooting victim, Mary Nobles, had been listed as a missing person from August of 1985 until May of 2005. In May of 2005, Sheriff Mike Rackley of Dallas County and Sheriff J. B. King of Pulaski County reopened an investigation into the circumstances of her disappearance. Detective Lori Robinson of the Lebanon City Police Department assisted them in this investigation.
The investigation led the officers to a secluded pond in Pulaski County, which was drained and searched on May 22-23, 2006. At that time sufficient remains of Mary Nobles were located to provide a positive identification. John Brown was then charged with one count of murder in the first degree. Judge Storie sentenced Brown to a life term in the Missouri Department of Corrections. At the conclusion of the court hearing the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department transported John brown to the Jefferson City Correctional Center.
