SENECA ARMED ROBBERY - SOCIAL MEDIA NABS THE SUSPECT QUICKLY



SOCIAL MEDIA CAN BE THE DEVIL>>> BUT NOT LAST NIGHT
• Seneca PD requests Joplin PD help on FB
• FB post took about 20 minutes to identify suspect
• Already in custody by morning, he was spotted at casino

(64865) — Last night at 11:45 a man entered the Big Daddy's Gas Station in Seneca armed with a knife. The suspect left with cash and fled in a vehicle.

Seneca Police Chief Altic tells Joplin News First exclusively in our video...he contacted Joplin Police Department with an image from the security cameras because of JPD’s social large social media following.

“We only have about 800 people [on our FB page] in Seneca,” he tells us. “But Joplin’s following is extensive and they are a great source to provide law enforcement information. It only took about 20 minutes and they identified where the suspect was and Ottawa County was waiting for him.”

Chief Altic mentioned that social media can sometimes be the devil because people are so negative but sometimes it can be used in the right way..."you'd be surprised what some of these criminals put up on their pages. It makes it so easy for us to identify them."

Thank you to the Joplin Police Department, Ottawa County Sheriff's Office, unnamed tribal police agencies, Seneca Police Department & Chief James Altic, Newton County Sheriff's Office, Missouri State Highway Patrol and other agencies who made this arrest possible.

Also for those watching social media and reporting to authorities what you see...you are keeping us all more safe - thank you.

GRAMMY®️ AWARD WINNER>>> MICHAEL W SMITH TONIGHT AT CALVARY IN JOPLIN




GRAMMY®️ AWARD WINNER>>> MICHAEL W SMITH TONIGHT AT CALVARY IN JOPLIN

• New album A MILLION LIGHTS
• Song inspired while feeding Nashville homeless under Jefferson Street Bridge


(64804) – Michael said tonight from the stage in his concert his inspiration for writing this song "Love Always Wins" - while feeding homeless in Nashville. He told LIFEWAY christian stores in a printed interview online:

[RE: When writing the new album,] “I remember dry periods of just no creativity and then all of a sudden something shifts. You have an experience or you’ll feed the homeless down under the Jefferson Street Bridge in Nashville, or you have some encounter that was life changing at church or something.

And then all of a sudden you come in two, three days later and you write this amazing melody that sounds fresh. … And then you realize that you panicked for no reason, and I’m here, it comes to creative juices are flowing.”

Michael W. Smith has a new album just released, A MILLION LIGHTS, and he's currently touring supporting that album all across the country and Joplin one of the places he definitely wanted to stop!
