THIRD THURSDAY SERENADE ON A PERFECT EVENING

UNNAMED NEIGHBORHOOD HAS JOPLIN SWAT ON THE MOVE


UNNAMED NEIGHBORHOOD HAS JOPLIN SWAT ON THE MOVE

{This is the original story copy as it appeared during the situation near midnight 3/14/18}

- - - -EXCLUSIVE§LIVE!§ORIGINALSTORY- - - -
(Joplin MO) — Joplin Police Department have confirmed with Joplin News First they are currently in an active situation and have no comment at this time. However the public should not be alarmed.

At the very beginning of our LIVE! cast you can see a vehicle pull up. It's a JPD patrol wagon, where they appear to load up multiple people and transport.

According to eyewitnesses in this unnamed neighborhood it’s a shady house with a ‘whole lotta traffic’. So this could possibly be a warrant being served on a residence.

You can see the Metro Emergency Transport System/METS ambulance on standby in case there are any injuries to officers or occupants.

JPD will communicate with Joplin News First after the scene is clear and secure. We will have more details as they become available or whenever it becomes appropriate to release them.

Thanks for the anonymous tipsters tonight. You are all Joplin News First.

What is ODET? | Ozarks Drug Enforcement Team

WHAT IS ODET?

Ozarks Drug Enforcement Team is a combination of the former Jasper County Drug Task Force merged with the former Southwest Missouri Drug Task Force. 

"If you're going to investigate drugs on a larger level, it is often times across jurisdictional boundaries," said Sheriff Randee Kaiser, Jasper County. "By having a cooperative agreement across those boundaries, that helps our efforts." (quote source KOAM TV 7)

Haz-Mat Incident at Ajinomoto Windsor - ONE News Source Reported LIVE! & First


(64804) -- Our Joplin News First tipsters alerted us to this possible HAZ-MAT situation. It was told to us a heavy acid smell was observed in one of the sewage buildings. No reports of injuries while we were on the scene but depending upon wind directions and if there was a spill it would be determined in part by the Department of Natural Resources if anything contaminated the soil and/or runoff made it into an area creek.
Now on Tuesday morning official word from the Joplin Fire Department regarding an acid spill of 5-10 gallons "some point" in the day?
A dangerous situation avoided this time.  This all happened moments after the Joplin City Council Meeting where the Joplin ODOR ISSUES Group presented concerns.

Power Off in Areas of Downtown - Sunday Morning at 1:00 am

BE PREPARED!  THE POWER MIGHT BE OFF IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD
(64801) – About 700 homes and businesses will be without power overnight Saturday night/Sunday morning this weekend as Empire District will have a brief service interruption and electricity will be off.

WHAT: Power will be OFF
WHERE: Downtown Joplin (see map)
WHEN: Sunday, March 4
WHAT TIME: 1:00 am – 3:00 am

This scheduled outage is the result of substation maintenance and is necessary to ensure the safety of those involved. This project is part of an ongoing initiative to strengthen the delivery system and enhance reliability for customers.

The Joplin Police Department want to remind everyone that some traffic lights will be dark in some locations. Also all streetlights will be out so that makes traveling a little treacherous.

“Anytime a stoplight is not functioning, drivers are required to come to a complete STOP at the intersection and treat it as a 4-way-stop,” according to the JPD.
