March 22nd, 2018 in Local News

One person was taken into custody Thursday afternoon following a manhunt in Callaway County.

Deputies responded at 9:50 a.m. to a domestic disturbance on County Road 4016 near Holts Summit, according to Callaway County Sheriff's Department reports. The suspect, identified as Joshua Steen, 33, of Centertown, was alleged to have assaulted multiple people and subsequently stole a vehicle.

At 9:55 a.m., Callaway County communications received a call of a traffic crash on Route AA near County Road 4027. Deputies determined the crashed vehicle was the stolen vehicle and Steen was the driver, but he had fled on foot.

The Callaway County Sheriff's Office K9 unit, multiple Missouri Highway Patrol troopers and a Highway Patrol aircraft were called into try and find Steen.

At approximately 12:50 p.m., a state trooper found Steen on County Road 4031 near County Road 4021 and took him into custody without incident.

Steen was booked into the Callaway County Jail Thursday night facing charges of first-degree tampering with a motor vehicle, third-degree domestic assault, leaving the scene of an accident and fourth-degree assault. He was being held without bond.
