Man Wanted on Newton Co. Burglary Warrant Arrested

Dennis Goode was arrested in Branson early Saturday morning.
JOPLIN, MO -- A man wanted on a burglary warrant out of Newton County is now in custody.

Newton County Sheriff Ken Copeland tells us 32-year-old Dennis Caleb Goode was arrested early this morning in Branson. 
Branson Police found Goode driving a red Ford F-150 just before six. His arrest was in connection to a burglary which happened earlier this month.

Sheriff Copeland tell us deputies are in Branson and will transport Goode to Newton County today.

Jasper County detectives are also in Branson investigating an incident of shots fired at a deputy. The truck Goode was arrested in this morning matches the description of the vehicle involved in the shooting.

The incident started when a Jasper County deputy tried to stop the truck around ten last night near Junge and Central City Road in Joplin. As the deputy came up behind the vehicle, shots were fired from the moving truck, striking the deputy's car in the hood and windshield. The officer was not injured.

The truck then led several law enforcement agencies on a pursuit around the Galena area and into west Joplin.

Jasper County deputies called off the search around 1:30 this morning after the truck was not found. No arrests have been made in connection to this case, and the investigation is ongoing.
