Bates County Sheriff's Office seeking public assistance

The Bates County Sheriffs Office is assisting the Bates County Prosecutors Office in an attempt to identify a potential witness.

On July 5th, 2019 a male and female were in the Butler Walmart and became uncooperative with employees. During the incident one or both of the parties made a threat to the employees by saying they would “blow” up Walmart.

A female witness came forward and spoke briefly with responding law enforcement stating she saw one of the subjects recording the incident on their cell phone. The witness left the scene before being identified by Law Enforcement.

If you are or if you know the female witness in this case please contact the Bates County Prosecutors office at 660-679-4030
