An early morning traffic stop led to the recovery of a stolen vehicle, drug paraphernalia and the apprehension of two suspects.

Just before 2:00 a.m., a Cherokee County Deputy Sheriff conducted a traffic stop on 2006 Dodge Truck near Riverton. As the truck, which had previously been reported stolen out of Jasper County, Missouri, came to a stop, 34-year-old Darrin Scott Bresee, of Joplin, began to flee on foot but was quickly apprehended. The deputy discovered a handgun on Bresee at the time of the arrest.

Inside the vehicle, deputies seized suspected meth paraphernalia and also arrested the passenger, 23-year-old Dylan Campbell, of Quapaw, Oklahoma.

“This situation, which involved an armed and wanted suspect driving a stolen vehicle with felony drug paraphernalia in it could have ended much differently. Fortunately, the deputy was able to seize illegal contraband, recover stolen property and apprehend both suspects so they can be held accountable for the crimes they are suspected of committing,” according to Cherokee County Sheriff David Groves.

Bresee was transported to the Cherokee County Jail where he is being held in lieu of $6,500.00 bond on allegations of Felony Possession of Stolen Property, Felony Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Criminal Use of a Weapon, Driving While Suspended, No Insurance, and an outstanding warrant for his arrest out of Jasper County.

Campbell was also transported to the Cherokee County Jail.  He is being held on allegations of Felony Possession of Stolen Property and Felony Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. His bond has been set at $2,500.00.
