Bellamy arrested Sunday for failure to meet bond conditions
Billy Joe Bellamy, 36, of Marshall, is in custody at Saline County Justice Facility after Saline County sheriff's deputies arrested him on a warrant issued Friday, Feb. 20.
Bellamy was spotted driving a vehicle Sunday, Feb. 22, by a deputy who knew there was a warrant for Bellamy's arrest, according to a sheriff's department report. Missouri State Highway Patrol troopers assisted in the arrest, according to the report.
Bellamy had been held at the jail since his arrest in December for class D felony unlawful use of drug paraphernalia, class D felony possession of anhydrous ammonia in a non-approved container and seven counts of class C felony unlawful possession of a firearm.
He was released from custody for drug treatment when his bond was reduced from $15,000 cash-only to $15,000 cash or surety on condition he complete the inpatient drug treatment program and immediately return to the jail. When Bellamy failed to return, bond was re-set to $10,000 cash-only and the warrant issued.
