The Jackson County, MO Sheriff’s Office has been receiving reports that someone identifying themselves as “Sgt. Danny Barnes from Jackson County Sheriff’s Office” has been calling and threatening to arrest people if they do not pay outstanding warrants.
An investigator will be assigned the case to pursue and/or follow-up any available leads.
No. There will only be an investigator assigned if it is deemed a solvable case, meaning if there is any suspect information, vehicle information, evidence that would point to a suspect, eye witnesses, etc. All felony cases or any case involving a missing person will always have an investigator assigned. An example of a crime where there would be no investigator assigned is property damage, such as a mail box damaged, with no suspect information or vehicle description available.
If you have further information to give such as serial numbers on property, suspect information, etc., the Administrative Assistant can take that information at 816-541-8017, ext. 219.
The investigator will take statements from the victim(s) and witnesses to develop a suspect(s) in the case. Once a suspect(s) is identified the investigator will interview the suspect(s) and if there is probable cause will present the case to the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office for prosecution.
No. A deputy must respond to your location to take the report, or you can come to our office at Fleming Park (Lake Jacomo) to make a walk-in report.
