This is a compilation of reports released by the Pettis County Sheriff's Office:

On Saturday, Pettis County Deputies conducted a vehicle stop on a minivan on South Ingram. The driver, Robert William Smith, was found to have an active Boone County warrant for harassment with a $1,000 cash or surety bond. Smith was also found to be in possession of a crystal substance and drug paraphernalia. Smith was taken to the Pettis County Jail on a 24-hour hold, pending formal charges for endangering the welfare of a child, and possession of a controlled substance.


 

On Friday afternoon, Pettis County Deputies responded to a motor vehicle crash at Main and Norton Road. There were no injuries and only minor damage to the two vehicles.


 

On Friday morning, Pettis County Deputies took a report for theft of items from a vehicle in the 33000 block of Overstreet Road. There were no leads or suspects at the time of the report.


 

On Thursday at 8:31 p.m., Pettis County Deputies responded to Stoney Ridge for a disturbance in progress. 34-year-old Salina McCollom of Sedalia was arrested on three active warrants with a total cash bond amount of $560. McCollom was taken to the Pettis County Jail where she was held on the warrants.


 

On Thursday at 8:07 p.m., Pettis County Deputies took a report involving a violation of an order of protection. Investigation continues.


 

On Thursday at 2:30 p.m., dispatch received a call asking Deputies to respond to 3130 South Ingram for a suspicious person. Deputies and the MSHP responded to the scene and the male suspect could not be located. A short time later, the male was located by the Missouri State Highway Patrol on Travis Drive. The suspect, identified as 41-year-old Kevin A. Clark, ran into a nearby woodline and a perimeter was set up. Pettis County K9 Cav and Deputy Moore responded to the scene and were able to track Clark through the woods. Because of the terrain and heat, the search for Clark was soon called off. Clark is still wanted on three active felony warrants. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Clark is urged to call the Pettis County Sheriff's Office at (660) 827-0052.


On July 7 at 12:23 a.m., the Pettis County K9 Unit conducted a traffic stop at US 50 and Quincy in Sedalia. A computer check showed that the driver, Eric Swigert, was arrested for felony driving while revoked or suspended.

LOOK: Here are the best lake towns to live in

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
