On Monday, July 10th, 2017, Jasper Officers made contact with two subjects occupying a black GMC truck in a business parking lot near 4th and Lexington St., Jasper, Missouri.
The driver, Jeffrey Cross and the front passenger, Teresa Wilson, both of Mansfield, Mo, both claimed they pulled into the business to get ice cream. After further questioning, Cross admitted they pulled into the parking lot to in fact avoid the police after seeing a squad car driving near them due to him having a revoked driver's license and possibly a warrant.
Cross was arrested for driving while revoked and for an outstanding felony warrant with a bond of $10,000 cash only out of Douglas County, Mo. A search of his person and pockets yielded a plastic baggy with about 1/2 gram of a crystal substance believed to be methamphetamine. Found in Wilson's purse was two glass pipes with methamphetamine residue. They were both transported to the Jasper County Jail.
Note: Both persons are considered innocent until proven guilty in the court of law.
