Man charged in bank robbery, trooper shooting

WARRENTON, Mo. (AP) — An eastern Missouri man has been charged with robbing a bank and shooting a trooper while fleeing.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 64-year-old Warren Gladders of Wentzville was charged Saturday in Warren County with first-degree assault against a law enforcement officer, armed criminal action, robbery in the first degree and possession of an illegal firearm.

Bail has been set at $500,000. It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney.

Gladders is accused of robbing the First Bank of Dutzow on Friday morning. Afterward, a witness provided a description of the getaway car. When Gladders was stopped, a shootout ensued near the St. Charles County town of New Mell.

Gladders was shot in both legs, and a bullet lodged in the bullet-proof vest of a trooper.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Representatives from more than two dozen law enforcement agencies from Missouri and Illinois will gather in St. Louis next week for a workshop on cyberbullying.

The organization Child Safety Day is hosting the workshop on Wednesday. It will be led by Tina Meier, whose 13-year-old daughter, Megan, committed suicide in 2006 after being the victim of cyberbullying.

Organizers say the workshop will include police officers conducting a mock re-investigation of the Megan Meier case using current state laws instituted after Megan's death.

Organizers of the workshop say bullying on the Internet can play a role not only in suicides but in school shootings and other tragedies.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says a trooper was saved by his bulletproof vest during a shootout.

The incident started after a suspect walked into a First Bank in Marthasville. The suspect took an undisclosed amount of money and sped away from the scene. A State Trooper was in the area and chased the suspect onto a nearby highway. The suspect stopped his vehicle and started shooting at the officer. He was hit in the chest, but was able to shoot back and hit the suspect in the leg.

The trooper was taken to the hospital and is expected to be okay.

The suspect is receiving treatment at St. John's Mercy Medical Center.

Justin DeRyke enters not guilty plea

Justin DeRyke was in court Thursday to enter a not guilty plea for the murder of his young niece.

With the plea, DeRyke moved the case closer to a trial. Police say DeRyke admitted to stabbing 7-year-old Willow Long to death, but he claims it was to "put her out of her misery". He claims that the girl fell into a pile of brush and a stick stabbed her in the neck. An autopsy result turned up evidence that prosecutors say contradict his story. The judge set the trial for December 2.

If convicted, DeRyke faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison.

   St. Charles police believe the man accused of drugging and raping a 13 year old girl and taking nude cell phone pictures of her, probably had more victims.  

   Forty-seven year old Thomas Wilburn is charged with statutory sodomy, statutory rape and enticement of a child under age 14.  

   St. Charles County Prosecutor Tim Lohmar says Wilburn lured the girl to his apartment in May through a singles' telephone chat service that's supposed to be for adults only.   Lohmar calls that disturbing.  "It is very concerning that somebody who's underage could find their way,  not only into the chat room, but to be able to participate in the chat room," Lohmar said.

   Lohmar says this girl probably wasn't the only victim Wilburn met through the chat service.  "We have reason to believe that there are other victims out there, for sure," he said.

   Police say Wilburn was identified through court ordered phone records.  

   Wilburn is a registered sex offender with statutory rape convictions in 2007.  He's currently jailed on $100,000 bond.

   Anyone with information about this case, or additional victims is urged to call the St. Charles Police Department at (636) 949-3300.

St. Louis Police say they have arrested the people responsible for a series of robberies and shootings earlier this week.

Officers say a 32-year-old man and 28-year-old woman are responsible for three robberies on Monday night. The first happened just after 8 PM, when the pair allegedly shot a victim. About an hour later, police say the couple robbed and shot a victim. And just 10 minutes later and just blocks away, the pair robbed another person.

The suspects were captured after police released a photo of the woman using a debit card that was taken from one of the victims.
