Two busted after chase

CAMDEN COUNTY – Two people have been arrested after a pursuit on Horseshoe Bend last week.

According to the Camden County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) late Tuesday December 26, a sheriff’s deputy from the Horseshoe Bend Patrol District initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle with no visible registration in the area of State Road MM and Chimney Point.

The vehicle fled the stop and, after a pursuit, the vehicle stopped in a driveway on Highly Drive.  Both occupants of the vehicle fled the area on foot, the CCSO said.

Additional deputies arrived to assist in the search for the two occupants of the vehicle along with officers from Lake Ozark Police Department and troopers from the Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP).

During the search, deputies located one suspect, Malik DC Scott, 25, of Belton MO, in the crawl space of a nearby house.

Shortly after Scott was taken into custody, MSHP Troopers found the second suspect, Kabreya M Rogers, 26, of Raytown, MO, hiding in a nearby dumpster.

During the investigation, deputies said they discovered the vehicle was reported stolen out of Independence, MO.

Deputies also claimed to have recovered several items of drug paraphernalia inside the vehicle, including methamphetamine and cocaine.

Deputies also recovered several garage door openers and 22 sets of keys. Several of the sets of keys had street addresses on them and deputies are working to find the owners of the keys.

Scott and Rogers were arrested and transported to the Camden County Adult Detention Facility.

On December 27, Rogers was charged with the two counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance (Felony) and is also being held on several outstanding warrants from Missouri and Kansas. She is being held without bond.

Scott is charged with 1st Degree Tampering with a Motor Vehicle (Felony) and Resisting/Interfering With Arrest For A Felony.

Scott is also being held on several outstanding warrants from Missouri and Kansas. He is being held without bond.

The CCSO reminds people that these charges are merely allegations of wrongdoing. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
