On Feb. 1  the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office received a call regarding a suspicious vehicle at Redbank Store.  The caller stated that a male subject came into the store attempting to cash Arkansas checks with a Missouri ID.

After being turned away the vehicle continued to linger in the parking lot. Deputies Stroud, Wallace, and Roberts responded to Redbank in an attempt to locate the vehicle in question.  Deputy Stroud made contact with this vehicle in the area of County Road 546 and 543 with deputies Wallace and Roberts backing him up. The vehicle was found to have three occupants one of which, Simon Albrecht, 36 of Arkansas, was found to have two warrants from other areas that were non-extraditable.

A search of the vehicle was conducted and Albrecht was taken into custody on a 24 hour investigational hold.  A warrant was issued by the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office for felony class E unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia-amphetamine or methamphetamine.

This warrant carried a bond of $10,000 10% cash or surety with CPS supervision and drug testing.  Albrecht appeared in court on Feb. 16  and was released on his own recognizance with CPS supervision in Springfield and a court date in April.

On Feb. 6 the Missouri State Highway Patrol arrested Quisto Eutsler, 29, of Squires, on a Kansas warrant.  Eutsler was booked into the Douglas County Jail. On Feb. 7, Eutsler was served with a felony class E warrant for resisting/interfering with arrest for a felony.

Bond was set at $15,000 cash only as a result of Eutsler’s lack of cooperation with Highway Patrol upon his initial arrest.  Eutsler was held in the Douglas County Jail until he appeared in court on Feb. 16.  At that time Eutsler’s bond was reduced $2,500 cash only with CPS and drug testing, house arrest, and GPS monitoring. Kansas also withdrew their warrant and Eutsler bonded on his local warrant.

On Feb. 6, Erin Nichols, 24 of Ava, was arrested by Mansfield Police Department on two Douglas County warrants.  The first warrant was issued in late January on a Missouri State Highway Patrol case from November of 2016 for felony class C possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine). This warrant carried a $15,000 10% cash or surety bond requiring CPS supervision with drug testing.

The second warrant was issued in early February for fail to obey judge’s order on charges from June of 2016 for felony class C possession of controlled substance (methamphetamine) and misde-meanor class A unlawful use of drug paraphernalia. This case was investigated by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. This warrant had no bond, but required that Nichols serve a 10 day court commit in the Douglas County Jail.  Nichols appeared in court on February 16  and was released on both charges with house arrest.

On Feb. 15  Deputy Gabe Stroud conducted a traffic stop on Justin Treece, 29 of Nixa. From this traffic stop Treece was held on a 24 hour investigational hold in the Douglas County Jail while a warrant was issued by the Prosecuting Attorney. Treece is now incarcerated on the following charges:
