McDonald County’s Special Response Team shoot “bean bag” rounds and use a K9 to arrest a man who they say stole a Porsche Cayenne from neighboring Jasper County on Monday, February 4.
Around 7 p.m., McDonald County Sheriff’s Office found a stolen 2005 Porsche Cayenne at an apartment complex outside of Noel on Highway 90.
Deputies then found the apartment where the suspect was and learned that he may be in possession of a handgun, according to the release.
The tenant gave deputies permission to search the apartment and that’s when the suspect, Scott Eugene Carter, from Anderson, Missouri, was found hiding in a bedroom. Deputies said he threatened suicide and was holding a gun.
Deputies contained Carter in the room, called the McDonald County Special Response Team (SRT), and evacuated tenants from the apartment complex, according to authorities.
There was a four-hour negotiation surrender process between SRT and Carter. By 11:45 p.m., Carter was arrested by SRT who shot 12 gauge bean bag rounds and released one of MCSO K9s, according to the sheriff’s office.
Carter had minor injuries and was taken by ambulance to Freeman Neosho Hospital, in Neosho, Missouri; he was later released to authorities.
One SRT deputy was treated at the scene with minor injuries.
Carter is held on outstanding warrants at the McDonald County Detention Center. He faces new charges including felony stealing, possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of a weapon and felony resisting arrest.
