On that date, at approximately 6:58 PM, a Callaway County Sheriff’s Office deputy was patrolling the Kingdom City area. During the course of the patrol, the deputy stopped a vehicle in the 5000 block of Old Highway 40 for a traffic violation.  Dexter Richmond, 48, of Fulton was identified as a vehicle occupant.  During the course of the traffic stop investigation, a stolen firearm, numerous felony level controlled substances (to include meth), and drug paraphernalia related to the sale of drugs were located.

Richmond is currently under the supervision of the Missouri Department of Corrections – Board of Probation and Parole.  According to Case.net — the state Court’s public access point — Richmond has nine (9) prior felony convictions, including a Class A felony conviction for distributing drugs near our county’s schools.  Richmond was sentenced to 10 years in the Missouri Department of Corrections in November, 2016, by a Callaway County Judge (Court case 14CW-CR00368, accessible at www.courts.mo.gov/casenet).  Richmond was released in January, 2019, after serving just over two years of his sentence!!  Furthermore, in February, 2019 – one month after Richmond’s release on state parole – Callaway County deputies again arrested him for felony Delivery of a Controlled Substance in Fulton (Court case 19CW-CR00234-01, accessible at www.courts.mo.gov/casenet).  After that arrest, Richmond’s state parole was not revoked and he has remained free in our community to commit further criminal (felony) acts.  Callaway County Sheriff Clay Chism continues to stand with numerous other elected Sheriffs across the state to ensure our community members are enlightened as to situations as this.
