MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Mo. – Four people are behind bars and another person is wanted in a rural Missouri investigation linked to a stolen vehicle and meth possession.

Authorities in Montgomery County have arrested Christopher E. Smith, 39; Rebbeca J. Craven, 28; Roy B. Staab, 38; and Cailtin M.E. Church, 31, in the investigation, while Bryan C. Locke, 34, is on the run.

The investigation began on Nov. 4 when a business owner of an auto repair shop inspected the vehicle and reported some suspicious information to police. Deputies checked surveillance video around the city of Middletown and determined the vehicle had been stolen. Police stopped the vehicle later that night, leading to the arrests of Smith and Craven. Investigators say Craven had an undisclosed amount of meth.
