On 10-28-13, the Jasper County Sheriff's Office is seeking charges of 1st Degree Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer, Armed Criminal Action and Unlawful Use of a Weapon against Dennis Caleb Goode, 31, of Carl Junction, Mo.

Updated October 27, 2013 at 8:47 PM:  More evidence is sought against a man who was on the run and wanted for burglary in Newton County.  Jasper County authorities received a tip this morning from a resident along Central City Road about suspicious items on the side of the roadway.

When authorities arrived, they found live ammunition, along with shell casings, and other items believed to have been thrown out of the window of a pickup truck involved in a chase on Friday between Jasper County deputies and possibly  Dennis Goode.

Goode was taken into custody Saturday morning in Branson.  He may be the driver of a red ford pickup that failed to stop for a deputy on Friday night at Junge and Central City Roads.  When the deputy tried to pull over the pickup, police say  shots were fired from the truck.

There is no word if the evidence collected Sunday  will be used against Goode.

 

Updated October 26, 2013 at 9:38 PM:  It appears Dennis Caleb Goode, wanted for burglary in Newton County and was caught by Branson police this morning, may have been involved in an overnight car stop in Joplin that led to shots fired at Jasper County deputies.

The scene began when a deputy attempted to stop a pickup truck at around 10 last night at 13th and Central City Road.  The driver of the car refused to stop, then fired a round at the deputy.  The driver and a female passenger then fled, and were chased by officials into Galena, Kansas, where police lost sight of them.

No injuries were reported.

The Jasper County Sheriff's Office says the pickup truck involved in this incident last night matches the pickup Goode was in when he was arrested in Branson.

"We can make speculations all day long, but until we get information on exactly who it is, what it is, we really don't know," says Captain Derek Walrod with the Jasper County Sheriff's Office.  That's why we're asking for the help of the public to help solve this one."

Detectives from the Jasper County Sheriff's office are in Branson following up on information.

 

Updated October 26, 2013 at 6:51 PM:  An armed suspect wanted in Newton County is now in custody.  Dennis Caleb Goode was arrested just before 6 this morning in Branson.  Details of the arrest are not being released, but Goode was transported to the Newton County jail and is being held there.  Branson police say they contacted Goode in a parking lot and discovered he was wanted on a Newton County warrant.

 

Updated October 24, 2013 at 6:10 PM:  Police searched the home after taken three into custody on warrants.

Detectives looked for drugs or narcotics manufacturing but didn't find any in the duplex. However officers confiscated what they believe to be stolen property.  Lt. Matt Stewart says officers have confirmed a guitar found was stolen in a Newton County burglary. Other items seized include other guitars, a saxophone, power tools, cameras and cell phones.

Joplin police will work with other law enforcement agencies to identify if any are part of stolen property cases.

Lt. Stewart says those agencies may have suspects but there could also be more charges brought against those in the duplex.  Those would come if it can be proven that they knowingly received stolen property.
