Christmas weekend search locates federal firearms fugitive in Laquey

Joseph Matthew Trotter, 30, of Laquey

PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (Dec. 27. 2010) — Sheriff J.B. King announced Monday that his deputies, along with Waynesville police, spent several days hunting for a federal fugitive and successfully arrested him early Sunday morning, the day after Christmas.

Joseph Matthew Trotter, 30, was found on Sumpter Road in the Laquey area, King said, and was taken into custody without incident at 2:30 a.m. The federal arrest warrant charges him with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

King said Monday morning that Trotter was still in his jail and that he expected officers from the United States Marshals Service to pick him up later on Monday. The federal agents who arrived ended up being from federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, and they took him for a court hearing before a federal judge in Springfield.

Trotter, a Laquey resident, has an extensive criminal history. Recent gun-related cases were two Class C felony charges of unlawful possession of a firearm accusing him of having a Model 27 Glock semi-automatic handgun and a .22-caliber semi-automatic handgun on Dec. 5, 2008, despite being convicted on April 19, 2002 in Pulaski County of possession a controlled substance.
