Shotgun-wielding man assaults an officer after home break-in

(KMOV) – A 52-year-old man is charged after breaking into homes wielding a shotgun and resisting arrest in Wright City on July 7.

Police responded to a 911 call reporting a burglary on Tony Drive around 3 a.m., but the suspect had fled the scene.  Another 911 caller reported a burglary at a nearby residence on Cardinal Drive as police were investigating the first burglary incident.

Police arrested Perry Crawford as he was exiting the residence and he resisted arrest and assaulted a police officer.

A search warrant was later issued at Crawford’s residence and a substance believed to be methamphetamines was located and seized.

Crawford is facing charges for burglary, assault, possession of a controlled substance and resisting arrest.

Due to Crawford’s status of being on parole from the Missouri Department of Corrections his parole was violated and he was transported back to prison on Monday morning.
