On Tuesday, July 4th, the Circuit Court of Marion County charged Travis L. Rickey, 34 of Hannibal, with Attempted Stealing, Property Damage, and Resisting Arrest. The charges stem from an incident that occurred on Wednesday, June 28th at approximately 2:48pm in the 2100 block of Broadway. Officers were called to the alleyway of the 2100 block of Broadway for a stealing in progress. It was reported a male, identified as Rickey, was attempting to remove items from a vehicle parked in the alleyway. When officers contacted Rickey, he jumped into his vehicle and fled the area. On Wednesday, July 3rd, Detectives and the Anti-Crime Enforcement Squad (ACES) went to a residence in the 1000 block of Hayward. They were given consent to search the residence for Rickey. He was located hiding under a bed. When Rickey came out from under the bed he attempted to flee again but was quickly apprehended. Rickey was transported to Marion County Jail. His bond was set at $25,000.00 cash or surety and he has since posted bond on the warrant.

A criminal charge is merely an allegation and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
