Subject Check At Happy Acres Leads to Arrest of Sedalia Man
On Sunday, Pettis County Sgt. Apel was dispatched to the well-being check on an individual reported to be passed out at Happy Acres, 22527 Hwy 6.
A short time later his vehicle was reported to be traveling south on 65 and was ultimately stopped near 65 and Eagleview Drive.
Contact was made with the driver, identified as Larry Denham, 32. Running Denham through Joint Communications, Sgt. Apel learned his driver’s license was revoked in the State of Missouri.
During arrest, a black bag dropped from Denham’s shorts. Consent was granted to search the bag. Inside the bag were two baggies of suspected methamphetamine, paraphernalia, Suboxone, and numerous capsules later identified to contain Fentanyl.
A warrant was later issued for Possession of a Controlled Substance and Driving While Revoked with a bond of $7,500.
