Pursuit starts in Seligman, ends in Purdy

Two people have been arrested following an alleged burglary and vehicle pursuit from Seligman to Purdy.

Darrell Delong, 34, of Troy, is charged with first-degree burglary, armed criminal action and misdemeanor resisting arrest. Amber Bullock, 31, of Springfield, is charged with first-degree burglary.

According to a probable cause statement filed by Chris Hutson, deputy with the Barry County Sheriff's Office, Delong and Bullock allegedly entered a home on 1178th Street in Washburn on Sept. 23. Delong was allegedly armed with a handgun and assaulted the homeowner, then left the scene in a 2002 SUV.

He was located again on Berry Avenue in Seligman and began to flee in the vehicle, eventually bailing out on foot and being captured on Highway 37 north of Purdy.

Bullock allegedly drove Delong to the Seligman location, then switched seats with Delong before the vehicle pursuit began. She also allegedly fled on foot and was later located at Highway 37 and Highway 76/86.

Delong is being held in the Barry County jail on a cash-only bond of $75,000. He has been arraigned, and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 19 in the courtroom of Judge Robert Foulke. A motion for bond reduction has also been filed by Delong's attorney, Kyle Tolbert.

Bullock is being held on a $50,000 bond. She has also been arraigned, and a disposition hearing is scheduled for Oct. 5 in Foulke's courtroom.
