Glenn Stevens Cleared in Versailles
I’m hearing on the way home tonight that that Raymore, Missouri, resident Glenn Stevens, arrested back in July, has had all charges dropped in Versailles, Missouri.
As I had written earlier, reports appeared to point to a case of mistaken identity. The Prosecution in question refused to budge in light of apparent proof that Mr. Stevens had been in Kansas City, including ATM and dinner receipts.
KCTV Channel 5 started a news investigation into the situation. To recap, a partial license plate apparently led authorities to Mr. Stevens, and “witnesses” supposedly identified him from his own driver’s license photo showed to them by a local police officer.
A newly elected prosecutor reviewed the security tapes, and, coupled with the other evidence, concluded that Mr. Stevens was not the man they were looking for. Charges have been dropped in Morgan County, MO, and his attorneys believe the other two jurisdictions in question will follow suit, considering their cases were based on information from Versailles.
It appears that justice will prevail here. The sad situation is that it took six months and a major TV News investigation shining the light to reveal the truth. A toast to KCTV 5 for not letting this story go.
As for the actual thieves, they would still be out there. If you know anything about who they may actually be, please contact your local authorities with the information.
The 10 pm newscast will be airing this story. Will update with a link to that as soon as possible.
