Ten still at large in Callaway County after narcotics roundup

Ten people still are wanted on narcotics charges after the execution of a large-scale arrest warrant roundup conducted by the MUSTANG and East Central drug task forces Wednesday morning.

Area law enforcement is looking for Charles A. Robinson Sr., Bradley C. Barrett, Mark S. Foreman, Kyle D. Rutherford, Kimberly K. Case, Tatum Carter, Doreen Blackmon, Charles R. Harris, Richard B. Hagedorn and Linda B. David, all for distribution of controlled substance.

The Fulton Police Department, Callaway County Sheriff’s Department, Cole County Sheriff’s Office, Jefferson City Police Department and the Missouri State Highway Patrol also participated in the multi-jurisdictional roundup, which yielded 19 arrests in Callaway and another five in Cole County, where there still are 13 persons at large.

Taken into custody in Callaway County were: Thomas J. Pittmon on two counts of distribution of controlled substance near public housing; Margaret M. Rodecap on one count distribution of controlled substance; Linda Holliman on two counts of distribution of controlled substance; Freddie J. Eads on one count of distribution of controlled substance, one count of distribution of controlled substance near public housing; Janet L. Griffey on one count distribution of controlled substance; Victory Ray Mantel Jr. on two counts of distribution of controlled substance; Harley R. Mantel on one count distribution of controlled substance; Ryan Lee Miller on two counts of distribution of controlled substance; Judy Ann Dickens on three counts of distribution of controlled substance; Barry Richard Mudd on three counts of distribution of controlled substance near schools; Charles N. McNeil on two counts of distribution of controlled substance near schools; Alan K. Lawson on distribution of controlled substance prior persistent offender; Curtis L. Mahnken on distribution of controlled substance; Crystal Marie Foreman on one count of distribution of controlled substance near schools; Robert Lee Pittmon Jr. on two counts of distribution of controlled substance prior persistent offender; Andrew A. Anyaeto on one count distribution of controlled substance near public housing; Jennifer M. David on three counts of distribution of controlled substance and Mark William Holliman on one count distribution of controlled substance.

An additional arrest was made in New Bloomfield when officers went to an address looking for a subject with an arrest indictment and found David Wyatt Jr. to be in possession of stolen property at that location. Wyatt was arrested for receiving stolen property.

Fulton Chief of Detectives Lt. Andre Cook said the roundup, which started at 5 a.m. Wednesday, was not unusual in the number of warrants or arrests for such an undertaking. Although the charges are all similar in nature, he said the arrests were not necessarily all related to the same case.

“It’s a series of cases made by undercover officers attached to the MUSTANG task force, including officers from Fulton and Jefferson City,” Cook said. “An undercover officer typically makes their case and presents to the grand jury ... the grand jury will decide whether to make indictments, and then we serve them.”

Aside from the inability to locate all of the persons for whom warrants were issued, Cook said officers “didn’t have any problems with the indictments” Wednesday.

As for the individuals still at large, he said the search for them will not end until all are in custody.

“All law enforcement agencies will be looking for these subjects,” Cook said. “Some will turn themselves in, others will be arrested as part of routine enforcement.”
