Friday, February 24, 2012
More indictments were handed down this week by the Cole County Grand Jury. They included:
• Rayce Self, 34, Russellville, was charged with second-degree domestic assault, two counts of first-degree endangering the welfare of a child and second-degree property damage.
A Cole County Sheriff’s Department probable cause statement shows Self had followed a female in January from his residence to her ex-husband’s residence, thinking the female was cheating on him with her ex-husband.
At Millbrook Road and Route C, the female said she heard Self “gun” his truck engine and then intentionally crash into her vehicle.
Self’s two toddler children were in the vehicle at the time of the crash and were not restrained.
Self continued to follow the female until she returned to Self’s residence.
There the two got into an argument after he asked to “inspect her body” to see if she had sex.
Self pushed the female to the floor, but her daughter then laid over her to stop Self and called 911.
When interviewed, Self said his brakes locked up, but knew he’d be going to jail for crashing into the female’s vehicle. He said he was upset and was not paying attention to what he was doing.
• Mark Garrison, 38, of 2516 Lexington St., was charged with second-degree burglary.
A Jefferson City Police Department probable cause statement shows Garrison was developed as a suspect in break-ins to several storage sheds in January at Lorenzo Greene Missouri Valley Storage.
Authorities looked at surveillance video from the business and they were able to find a truck used in the break-ins. Items that had been stolen were found inside the truck and from there Garrison was developed as a suspect.
