Sheriff Danny Hickman reports the successful apprehension of Greg Chiello who was arrested in Taney County, Missouri last evening.
Through a press release yesterday the Sheriff’s Office had asked for assistance in locating Chiello who was wanted for distribution of child pornography. It is believed that a conversation was started on Facebook, the social networking site, about this request and a person recognized Chiello and notified law enforcement. Officers with the Branson Police Department followed up on the tip and were able to arrest Chiello without incident. Chiello is currently being held in the Taney County, Missouri Jail awaiting extradition to Arkansas.
Sheriff Hickman once again commends concerned citizens with helping law enforcement. He stated, “It takes us all working together to keep each one of us safe. Thank you to that person who took the time and trouble to assist us with this arrest.”
