Suspect pulls gun, flees home with $1,000, morphine pills

A Monett man was arrested last week for a June incident where he allegedly pulled a gun on two people in their home, demanded money, then fled the home with cash and prescription pills.

Trenton Carrington, 19, of Monett, is charged with first-degree robbery, a class A felony, and armed criminal action.

According to a probable cause statement filed by Det. Rob Evenson, with the Barry County Sheriff’s Office, the incident occurred at about 2-2:10 a.m. on June 8 at a home in the 15000 block of Southern Acres Drive in rural Cassville.

Carrington was visiting the home and is known casually to two victims, who were both inside at the time.

While in the home, Carrington asked to use the bathroom and started down the hall, then he allegedly turned around, pulled a handgun, pointed it at one of the victims and said, “Give me all your [expletive] money, and anything else.”

One victim gave Carrington ten $100 bills, totaling $1,000, and the other victim gave Carrington 60 morphine pills.

Carrington then allegedly fled the home, reportedly with two other people accompanying him.

Carrington’s last known address is in Monett, but it is unknown if he is still a Missouri resident. According to the probable cause statement, he was recently incarcerated in California, and a permanent address is unknown.

Carrington is being held in the Barry County jail on a cash-only bond of $75,000. A bond reduction hearing is scheduled for Friday at 11 a.m. in the courtroom of Judge Robert Foulke.
