Press Release by Stone County Sheriff Doug Rader

On Wednesday, July 7th, Deputies from Barry County Sheriff's Office requested assistance in following up on a vehicle that was driven by Ben Reagan during a traffic stop in Eagle Rock when Reagan fled on foot. Stone County Deputies responded with them to a residence at 5621 East Hwy 86 in Lampe, Mo.  When they arrived on scene, further investigation led to inconsistencies which led Deputies to believe Reagan was inside the residence.  A perimeter was formed around the residence and additional Deputies responded. 

Officers from Stone County Sheriff's Office, Barry County Sheriff's Office, Mo State Highway Patrol and the US Marshalls all responded to assist.  After several hours, phone contact was made with Mr Reagan.  After speaking with him, he was negotiated into walking out of the residence. Mr. Reagan walked out with his hands up and surrender without incident. 

Ben Reagan is currently incarcerated at the Stone County Jail on multiple warrants from both Missouri and Arkansas.  They include:

Arkansas Warrants are from an incident on June 12th when Reagan was attempting to kidnap and individual in Carroll County.  When Deputies arrived on scene, he fired his rifle at them multiple times and then fled into the woods. 

When Reagan was stopped in Barry County and fled on foot, multiple weapons, along with C4 Explosives, were located in the vehicle he was driving. 

Ben Reagan has been a priority for Law Enforcement to apprehend since that occurrence.  He has been tracked in both Mo and Arkansas over the past weeks by the Federal Marshals, State Patrol and Stone, Barry and Carroll County Deputies.
