  • Two individuals from Clarence were arrested on Thursday, November 21, after a short foot pursuit.
    According to Macon Police Captain Jeff Brown, an officer attempted to make contact with Billy J. Beasley, 36 of Clarence, in the 1700 block of North Missouri Street when he took off at a high rate of speed with a female passenger and two children within the vehicle. Beasley abandoned his vehicle near Rutherford and west Briggs Drive when he fled the area on foot, traveling eastbound across the KFC parking lot. He was subdued and taken into custody.
    Once taken into custody, Beasley was found with a controlled substance believed to be methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. He was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, endangering the welfare of a child, driving while license revoked, resisting arrest and active arrest warrant.
    During the pursuit and apprehension of Beasley, Candace Beasley, 28, of Clarence drove the abandoned vehicle from its stopping point to the business parking lot located at Briggs Drive and Missouri Street.
    Candace Beasley was then arrested for operating a motor vehicle without a valid license, endangering the welfare of a child and failure to provide proof of insurance.
    Billy Beasley is being held at Macon County Jail with no bond. Candace Beasley is being held at Randolph County Jail with $4,500 cash only bond. The Macon County Juvenile Office and Missouri Children's Division were contacted to assist during the investigation with the children.
    The Macon County Sheriff's Department also assisted with this incident.
