CAMDEN COUNTY, Mo. — A Stoutland man was arrested Wednesday evening driving a stolen truck.
On Wednesday, Jan. 18, a Camden County Sheriff’s Deputy on patrol in Stoutland saw a pickup truck driving on East State Road H that matched the description of one that had been recently stolen.
The deputy followed the pickup and identified that the the license plates matched the stolen pickup. When the deputy turned on his lights and sirens in an attempt to stop the vehicle, the vehicle allegedly increased speed.
The pickup drove through several fences and farm gates before finally coming to a stop after almost sliding into a pond. The deputy took the driver into custody and identified him as Tyler C. Alford, 22, of Stoutland. The pickup was returned to its rightful owner after assistance from the owner of the farm to pull it out of the field.
Alford was arrested and transported to the Camden County Adult Detention Facility. He is charged with the Class D Felony of Tampering With a Motor Vehicle 1st Degree and the Class E Felony of Resisting Arrest by Fleeing. He is being held on a $25,000 bond.
