JOPLIN - A man wanted in connection with a Newton County burglary was not located at the Joplin residence he was believed to be at early Thursday, though officers with the Joplin Police Department did find three other individuals with outstanding warrants at the residence.
According to Lt. Matthew Stewart of the Joplin Police Department, officers received information at approximately 3 a.m. Thursday that Dennis Caleb Goode, 32 of Carl Junction, was possibly in a residence located at 1411 E. 17th Street in Joplin.
Goode is wanted on a burglary warrant out of Newton County.
Newton County Sheriff Ken Copeland said Goode is believed to be armed and dangerous.
According to the probable cause affidavit, Goode is wanted in connection with a burglary that occurred July 3 at 6465 Impala Drive in rural Joplin.
According to the affidavit, fingerprints matching Goode's were taken off a jewelry box that was taken from the scene.
Goode also faces charges of resisting arrest from Oct. 10, when Newton County Deputy Bradley Black attempted to stop a vehicle Goode was a passenger in at 4600 South Rangeline Road, in Joplin.
According to the probable cause affidavit, Black attempted to stop a vehicle driven by a female identified as Tyeler-Anne Whetstone.
Black states he saw the vehicle stop, observed the male passenger, later identified as Goode, climb into the driver's seat and take off at a high rate of speed, traveling north on Rangeline Road.
The vehicle then allegedly drove through several red lights and was driving northbound in the southbound lane of Rangeline Road.
The vehicle then traveled west on 24th street from Rangeline Road, north onto Arizona Street, where it stopped at the Brittany Apartments.
Goode then allegedly ran from the scene.
The Joplin SWAT Team responded to the location on 17th Street early Thursday and discovered Goode was not located at the residence.
According to Stewart, it is believed Goode fled the area before the officers' arrival.
However, there were five individuals in the residence, and three of the five had active warrants for their arrest.
Officers arrested Bradley S. Reppond, on a failure to appear warrant out of Newton County.
Reppond's original charge was for possession of drug paraphernalia.
In addition to the Newton County warrant, Reppond also had a warrant from the City of Joplin for failure to appear, with the original charge being for the requirement of state license plates.
Officers also arrested 24-year-old Jordan T. Romero for a felony failure to appear warrant out of Jasper County. Romero's original charge was for delivery of a controlled substance.
Robert W. Kloeppel, 34, was also taken into custody on a City of Joplin warrant for failure to appear. His original charge was for public consumption.
