Barton county authorities looking for suspect who fled on foot

On the Morning of 02-03-2020 around 1:14 a.m. Deputy Sheriff Contreras made a traffic stop on a vehicle that had reported stolen license plates. He identified the driver of the vehicle and then attempted to detain the individual due to the license being stolen. The man failed to comply with the orders the deputy gave him. The man then assaulted the deputy by shoving the deputy and then the subject fled into a wooded area. Officers responded to the area to assist in trying to locate the subject, however he was not located. After further investigation it was found the vehicle was stolen from Springfield.

At around 7:00am the Sheriff’s Office received a call from a citizen who stated a subject had came to his home on NW 10th LN and requested something to drink. A deputy and officers from the Lamar Police Department responded to the area. When they arrived on scene it was reported the subject had jumped a fence and fled into a wooded area once again. Numerous Law Enforcement Officers from Lamar Police Department, Missouri State Highway Patrol, and the Vernon County Sheriff’s Office looked for the subject in the area of NW 50th Rd and NW 10th LN and NW 50th Rd and NW 20th LN. K9 teams from both the Lamar Police Department and the Vernon County Sheriff’s Office also search the wooded area for the subject. A helicopter from the Missouri State Highway Patrol also flew the area, but the subject has not been located as of yet. The man is believed to be a Jereme D. Fenley, of Shell Knob. Attached is a photograph of Fenley.



Archie to cancel classes Wednesday

School will be cancelled on Wednesday February 5, 2020 due to anticipated staff and student absences for those attending the Chiefs Super Bowl victory celebration. The Harrisonville School District has also cancelled classes for Wednesday for the same reasons. This means there will be no Cass Career Center classes.

The state of Missouri sets, through Statute, both the number of days (142) and number of hours (1,044) that school is required to be in session. Archie students will attend 165 days and 1,101 hours this year, which is well over the requirements as set by the state. Additionally, we have scheduled make-up days for days missed. By Statute, we are required to have make-up days included in every school year calendar.


We have soft polled staff and students. It is projected that we would have a statistically significant number of students absent from school, making it a fiscally sound decision to cancel school for the celebration. We also have a significant number of staff that are attending the event and anticipate that we would have difficulty covering the classrooms with certified teachers and substitutes.
***If the weather dictates a change in the parade date and time, the district will broadcast updated information.


Lastly, the basketball games scheduled for Wednesday night will continue as scheduled unless inclement weather dictates otherwise.
Thank you, and Go CHIEFS!
