Arrest made on warrant for child abuse, neglect

Douglas County authorities have made an arrest on two extraditable warrants, one of which was out of Ozark County for abuse or neglect of a child.

Douglas County Sheriff Chris Degase says in a social posting 35-year-old Donnie Brown of Ava was arrested on the evening of Jan. 21 after a traffic stop was initiated at the junction of Missouri highways 76 and 95.

Sheriff Degase says the Ozark County felony warrant has a $10,000 cash only bond. The second bond was out of Christian County for two charges of non-support, both misdemeanors.

A consented search of the vehicle yielded a pink baggie containing a white powdery substance field testing positive for methamphetamine, a clear baggie containing an unknown brown substance and a spray can with residue on the bottom testing positive for methamphetamine, as well.
