PITTSBURG — Two Pittsburg residents were arrested early Wednesday morning on separate charges after police responded to a gunshot call.
According to a release from the Pittsburg Police Department, at about 12:43 a.m., Wednesday, officers were sent to the Sycamore Village apartment complex, at 2601 N. Joplin Street, after a caller reported gunshots.
Officers arrived and located two individuals in the area. During the course of the investigation, both were arrested for offenses not connected to the original call.
Jason S. Harper, 32, was arrested and transported to the Crawford County Jail for: possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, and outstanding warrants for both Crawford County District Court and the Pittsburg Municipal Court. He is being held on $3,805.17 bond.
Additionally, Courtney Allen, 19, was arrested and transported to the Crawford County Jail for criminal damage of an apartment door, stemming from an incident which occurred earlier that night at Sycamore Village. She is being held on $1,000 bond.
The “gunshots” were determined to have been caused by an unknown individual breaking the glass window at a nearby bus stop.
The investigations into these incidents are ongoing at this time. Anyone having information related to these incidents, or other crimes, is urged to contact the Pittsburg Police Department at 620-231-1700, or at the tip line, 620-231-TIPS (8477). Callers may remain anonymous.
