According to Vernon County Sheriff Jason Mosher, Detectives located 21-year old Chad Ellison and were able to take him into custody Monday morning in the 600 block of W. Garfield Street in Nevada, MO. Mosher says, “Our Office started receiving some great tips on Ellison from the citizens after our Most Wanted List was posted on our Facebook page. It’s great to have the support and assistance from the public in order to continue to make our Community a safer place”.
