CEDAR COUNTY, Mo. — Three were arrested in rural Cedar County, wanted on Vernon County warrants. As part of an investigation by Vernon County detectives, wanted subjects were located in Cedar County at a residence on South 625 Road. So early Wednesday morning, October 7, a search warrant was executed on the property.

Cedar County requested the assistance of Vernon County SRT (Special Response Team) to serve the warrant.

  • Suspects are identified as: (L-R, photo)
  • Cole Ogle, 29, of Nevada
  • Amanda King, 35, residence unknown
  • Cody Bowles, 28, of Nevada

According to a media release from VCSO:

Vernon County Sheriff Jason Mosher, two tactical teams were used during the operation. Mosher said the residence was surrounded by one team while another team, using an armored vehicle, approached the residence while using a loudspeaker to attempt to call the subjects out of the residence.

Mosher says that one team was able to locate one subject asleep in a camper trailer on the backside of the property. The other team was able to take another subject into custody that exited the residence as instructed. The third subject refused to exit the residence, which resulted in a team entering the residence and taking the subject into custody without incident.

Suspected methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia was also located.

Sheriff Mosher says he would like to thank Cedar County Sheriff Jim McCrary for the great teamwork during the apprehension of three Vernon County fugitives. All three subjects were being sought on multiple Felony warrants.
