Special News Release

On December 8, 2018, at approximately 1645 hours, Chillicothe Dispatch received a call from a citizen in reference to a reckless driver. The complainant advised that they were nearly struck by the vehicle, along with the same vehicle nearly striking a school bus and a vehicle head on, in the 1000 block of South Washington Street. Officers responded to the area but were unable to locate the vehicle in question. After some time, officers located the vehicle and attempted to stop the vehicle due to the danger to other motorists and pedestrians on the roadway. Before contact could be made, the driver drove off, failing to yield to emergency vehicles that were attempting to contact the driver. The driver made his way to U.S. 36 Highway westbound. Livingston County Deputies took over the pursuit of the vehicle near the Grand River bridge. Deputies and an officer followed the vehicle into Caldwell County, Missouri, where the driver struck the rear of another vehicle on the roadway, causing a traffic crash ending the pursuit. After the crash, the Missouri State Highway Patrol took over the crash investigation and is now leading the investigation as there is a concern the suspect at some point shot himself. A preliminary investigation reveals the subject was under the influence of alcohol and in possession of a firearm. Chief Maples met with the on-duty sergeant and officers involved. A preliminary administrative investigation shows that staff involved followed Chillicothe Police Department policy. Chief Maples also met with Livingston County Sheriff Steve Cox since both agencies were involved. Our thoughts and prayers are with the driver and passenger of the vehicle the suspect struck. It's reported that the passenger did not have injuries, and the driver received minor injuries. - Chief Maples

On Thursday, November 15, 2018, officers were advised by a citizen of a scam they had received through the mail. The citizen received a letter from a "bank". The letter states an account holder recently died and had the same last name as the citizen who received the letter. It further states for the citizen to contact the bank to retrieve the remaining funds in the account of the deceased account holder. The letter states for the citizen to contact the employee through a personal email account and not a work related email and the citizen and employee would then split the remaining substantial funds. This is a SCAM.

If you are unsure of the legitimacy of a document, then conduct some research or ask your local law enforcement for some guidance.

For Release: 05/08/18
Police Chief Jon Maples

This morning (May 8) the Chillicothe Police Department has been extremely busy. Chief, detective, and staff were called in because of a wanted individual investigation. While the detective was applying for a search warrant, officers were setting on the residence. The Chief responded to a trespassing call and arrested a 20-year-old female. She was later released pending a court appearance. Officers and the detective then responded to a domestic assault in the 200 block of Business Highway 36 where they arrested a male for domestic assault and a female on an active arrest warrant out of the State of Florida.

While there were two individuals in custody, officers met with Livingston County Deputy Mueller and K-9 Zaki. We were granted the Livingston County Search Warrant by the Judge and Prosecutor Adam Warren to search for the wanted individual. At approximately 0930 hours, officers of the Police Department along with Deputy Mueller and Zaki served the Livingston County search warrant in the 500 block of Mohawk Drive. Officers announced the search warrant several times without compliance. When the Deputy announced that the Livingston County K-9 Zaki was going to be released, the residents changed their minds and decided to comply with officer's requests. We arrested 29-year-old Thomas William Gamble on an active Livingston County arrest warrant and an active Carroll County arrest warrant. We also arrested two females for hindering the arrest of Mr. Gamble.

By 10:00 A.M. today (May 8) officers had arrested six people for various misdemeanor and felony charges. We do this to keep our community clean and safe.

POLICE IN ACTION PROGRAM

Chillicothe Police Department Creates New Police in Action Program - The Chillicothe Police Department believes it is very important to have a working relationship with the public. We believe that interacting with the public will create a trusting relationship and also assist in keeping the community safe. We will be hosting different events where police officers of the Chillicothe Police Department will interact with the public. We will call this new program "Police in Action." The plan for Police in Action is to hold events throughout the year interacting with the community, such as presentations, safety events, sporting events, and youth events. Our first Police in Action event will be teaming with recovering drug addicts. Police in Action will team with recovering drug addicts bringing presentations throughout Chillicothe to assist in cleaning up our community. Our first presentation will be for the Lifepoint Church youth group on February 17, 2016. Our focus of this presentation will be to inform the youth of what the Chillicothe Police Department stands for and what we want to accomplish. We want the youth to hear the testimonies of the recovering drug addicts and the impact that drugs have had on their lives.
