This is the 1st time I've heard of a buggy-jacking, but this criminal seemed to think it was the best mode of transportation. I don't think a horse drawn buggy would be my first choice if I was trying to escape the scene of a robbery, but those in rural MO may think a bit differently.

Robbery suspect arrested after commandeering Amish buggy

JAMESPORT, Mo. (AP) -- A suspect in a gas station robbery forced an Amish man at gunpoint to use a horse and buggy to take him to a trailer home in Jamesport, where he was found hours later hiding in a nearby shed, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said.

Draper Scott Richardson, 26, of Breckenridge, was charged Tuesday with two counts of first-degree robbery, first-degree assault, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon. Those charges stemmed from the robbery Saturday of a gas station in Chillicothe that led to shots being fired at bystanders and highway patrolmen, officials said.

He was being held at the Livingston County Jail on $1 million bond.

Patrol Sgt. Sheldon Lyon said that after the robbery, civilians chased the men, who had fled on foot, but one of the suspects fired shots at the pursuers.

Troopers took up the chase after the men took off in their car, officials said, and the suspects fired several shots at the officers. Two patrol cars were hit by bullets, the patrol said.

The fleeing car hit spike strips that had been placed in the road and came to a stop. One of the suspects, David Michael Searcy, 22, of Chillicothe, surrendered after a patrolman fired a shotgun at him, the patrol said.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Highway Patrol responded to the Jamesport trailer after getting a report of a stolen Amish buggy. The patrol and the Livingston County Sheriff's Department evacuated nearby homes, blocked off streets and called for a school lockdown as they surrounded the trailer.

Troopers unsuccessfully tried to reach Richardson by phone in the trailer.

After using a bullhorn to order Richardson to come out of the trailer, officers fired about 25 canisters of tear gas into the trailer. An hour later, they found him in a nearby shed.

I hate it when they run up at a stop light and start polishing your horse and then ask for money.

When I was 13 I spent one of the most miserable days of my life traipsing around that godforesaken shithole for 7 hours so that my parents could look at Amish furniture.

Yeah, I said the same thing. I figured 25 was a bit overkill for something that was at best a double wide.

Ya know, it could be they were about to be out of date ...but still I doubt they had 25 canisters to wate...I dunno I can just picture some hillbilly Sheriff "Fire another one Junior he is bound to come out!"

Yep.... This happened about 25 miles east of where I live... We use to stop by the Jamesport bar after playing in a softball league in Trenton... What was funny was how all the Amish kids use to go change their clothes and head up to the bar and play pool or set out back of the bar and smoke cigs...

I noticed that too. Maybe it was a triple-wide.
