Two men, woman charged with attempted robbery, resisting arrest

Three Cassville residents have been officially charged in connection to an alleged attempted robbery in the Mineral Springs area Wednesday night.

According to Johnnie Cox, Barry County prosecutor, Cassville residents Billy Ray Dunbar, 30, William Curtis Grant, 30, and Sarah Elizabeth Grant, 33, were each charged with attempted robbery in the second degree, a class C felony, and resisting arrest, a class D felony. For the C felonies, each of the accused faces seven years in prison, and for the D felonies, each of the accused faces up to four years in prison.

All three are still being held at the Barry County jail, with Dunbar being held on a $75,000 bond, William Grant on a $50,000 bond, and Sarah Grant on a $25,000 bond. The bonds are cash-only, and each of the three are still being held in the Barry County Jail with all three set to appear in court on Jan. 28 at 9 a.m.

According to the Barry County Sheriff's Department, a 911 call was received at 8:19 p.m. Wednesday regarding a suspicious person near a shop building on Farm Road 1170. After the subject left in a black, 1992 Ford Ranger with the other two suspects, two neighbors of the person who owned the shop building got in a vehicle and began following the Ranger.

The sheriff's department said the neighbors followed the trio to Farm Road 2180, when the subjects exited the Ranger and approached the neighbors and allegedly attempted to steal a pistol from their vehicle.

Deputies arrived on scene following a scuffle between the persons involved and arrested Dunbar, William Grant and Sarah Grant. No one was injured in the incident.
