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.
