On 12-11-15, Harrison again came to the residence and advised he was there to work on the drive way and wanted additional moneys. Harrison was accompanied by Suspect #2 , 29, Liberty, Mo.

Suspect #2 together with Harrison had advised they would work on the victim’s drive way wanted $150 for the service.

Suspect #2 was arrested for two Newton County warrants. (FTAs for Driving while suspended and Seatbelt).

Neither Josh Harrison or Suspect #2 had a business license to conduct business inside the city of Joplin. Harrison and Suspect #2 were taken into custody for no business license and property destruction due to the concrete dust they had spread over the driveway and carport.

Harrison was transported to the jail where he was served with complaints for business license required and property destruction. Suspect #2 was transported to the jail and served with complaints for business license required and property destruction.
