Letter: Search ends for attempted home invader

Comments re: ACSO: Arrest brings multiple investigations to close

By Victoria Pike

I was in shock to find out this man is free on bond the morning after scaring our community and our school kids. From what I've learned it started only a couple houses away. Our officers worked so professionally to bring this situation to a quick end. Thanks to them for all they do.

However, to wake up the next morning and find out he's been released and promises to come back to court is just terrible. How this happened legally I haven't a clue. I hope more details will be released to the public on how this happened.

Now, on to how we see this mistake is corrected and if it takes new laws then lets get on it. I call on our state legislators to see what happened here. This is a slap in the face to all those officers who put their lives on the line to apprehend this man. I can only imagine how they feel. I'm hoping an explanation on exactly how this happened will be put out.

It's early to place blame on how this happened but I'm sure it wasnt the officers' fault. They risk their lives everyday for us here in Adair County and should be treated as valuable assets to our community.

Just a kind reminder to our fiscal court that our Sheriff's Department needs all the help it can get from you to keep the fine officers we have and get them not 1 but 2 more officers. It's a matter of security for our community. It's not a luxury--it's a necessity. Looking forward to more details coming to light on how this person was able to bail out.
