  1.  On April 18, 2016, Deputies with the Crawford County Sheriff Department were dispatched to a possible Aggravated Assault with a knife near Mulberry Kansas.  The suspect had left the area in a grey 1990 Ford Ranger pickup prior to the Deputies arrival.  While en route to the call a Deputy located the possible suspect vehicle on 240th Street at 610 Avenue traveling south.  The Deputy activated his emergency lights and siren and the driver of the vehicle failed to yield to the Deputy.  The Deputy pursued the vehicle into Barton County, Missouri where the suspect exited the vehicle and fled on foot in the Mindenmines, Missouri area.  After a short foot pursuit, a taser was deployed and the suspect was taken into custody without further incident.  The suspect was identified as 41 year old David Wayne Trammell of Mulberry Kansas.  Trammell had two felony warrants for his arrest along with charges stemming from the incident: Aggravated Assault, Felony Flee and Elude, and Felony Interference with a Law Enforcement Officer.  Trammell was turned over to Barton County Missouri authorities where there are other possible pending charges against him.

 

David Wayne Trammell is presumed innocent unless and until the allegations against him are proved beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

2. On April 19, 2016 at 11:02 am, Crawford County 911 received a call from a homeowner that reported he had interrupted a burglary in progress of his residence northwest of Girard.  Two male subjects fled the scene in a silver passenger car, possibly a Toyota model.  Deputies intercepted the vehicle and pursued it through the Girard area to the northeast part of Crawford County.  Deputies were unable to get any identification from the vehicle as the trunk of the vehicle was open and they could not see a license plate.  The pursuit continued until deputies lost the suspect vehicle near the Mulberry area where it is believed the vehicle entered Missouri.  The victims reported that tools and propane heaters were taken and that damage had been done to a livestock trailer at the scene.  Assisting agencies include- Kansas Highway Patrol, Girard Police, Arma Police, Mulberry Police and the Barton County, MO Sheriff’s Office.
