Gasconade County Sheriff's Office...Most Wanted captured

ust want to take a moment to give a shout-out to Chief Robert Rickerd and his officers from the Owensville Police Department. Chief Rickerd's officers are hard-working and very dedicated to not only protecting and serving the citizens of Owensville but also the citizens of Gasconade County as a whole. By working together, we were able to capture our Most Wanted Fugitive early this morning.

We also want to give a shout-out to Franklin County Sheriff Steve Pelton and the men and women of the Franklin County Sheriff's Department for their invaluable assistance in bringing this fugitive to justice. This was truly a team effort and we can't thank these other agencies enough.

Cooperation among law enforcement agencies is vital to our oath to "Protect and Serve." This applies to every facet of law enforcement, day in and day out. We at the GCSO will continue to strive for inter-agency cooperation with great agencies such as Owensville PD, Franklin County, Hermann PD, Rosebud PD, Osage County, Crawford County, Maries County, the MSHP and all law enforcement agencies around the state.
