Burglary Suspect Caught



A burglary suspect that avoided a Joplin SWAT team raid earlier this week has been caught. Newton County Sheriff Ken Copeland confirmed today in a phone conversation with NewsTalk KZRG that Dennis Goode of Joplin has been arrested in Branson and will be brought back to Newton County for prosecution. Goode also allegedly opened fire on a Jasper County Deputy during a traffic stop Friday night: nobody was injured in that case, but Goode escaped. Copeland couldn't confirm what additional charges, if any, Goode will face once he returns to Newton County.
