Press Release - Inmate Roster

March 29, 2017

Versailles, MISSOURI

 

Morgan County Sheriff’s Office Launches New Website Feature

 

The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office launched a website in May 2013 and we are pleased to announce that we have now added an inmate roster to the site. We invite the community to visit our site at www.MorganCountyMOSO.org/roster_choose to view the new inmate roster. 

 

Having the inmate roster online will allow the public to view photos and booking details for individuals in the detention center as well as those released within the last 48 hours. 

 

Our Website – www.MorganCountyMOSO.org – provides details on all aspects of the Sheriff’s Office. One of our goals when developing the new Website was to provide a centralized location for current information such as press releases and where sex offenders are living in the county.

 

The Website was developed by MostWantedGovernmentWebsites.com by Brooks-Jeffrey Marketing, Inc. of Mountain Home, Arkansas. Brooks-Jeffrey specializes in the production of law enforcement and government Website solutions.

 

For more information about the Website please contact the Sheriff’s Office at 573-378-5481 or visit

Press Release - Pursuit

On 03/21/2017 at 03:11am, Morgan County Deputies were advised by dispatch of a pursuit that began in Benton County. Benton County Deputies were involved in a pursuit with a white Ford F-150. The pursuit started after law enforcement were dispatched to a gas station for a vehicle leaving and not paying for fuel. Morgan County Deputies were advised the vehicle had stolen license plates out of Jackson Missouri.


A short time later, Benton County Sheriff’s Office ended the pursuit and were searching a wooded area on foot for the vehicle. At approximately 3:50am, Morgan County Deputies located the vehicle travelling southbound on Highway 135, south of Stover.

The vehicle turned down a county road and continued to attempt to evade law enforcement. The driver of the vehicle lost control and the vehicle ran through a large metal fence post. The vehicle continued to travel off the road, driving through fences and barbed wire, causing deputies to lose the vehicle.


At 06:07am, Morgan County Deputies located the vehicle in a creek bed, however, there was no one inside the vehicle so deputies began to search the area.


At 07:59am, Morgan County Deputies located the two occupants of the vehicle after a brief foot pursuit. The subjects were located in the area of the vehicle. The males were identified as Michael Slack and Joey Hays. Both subjects were taken into custody and transported to the Morgan County Jail.
