Officials have released the name of the man responsible for Tuesday’s standoff in Dawn. Jeffrey Griffith, 40, was wanted for failing to appear in St. Joseph. He also had an outstanding Platte County felony warrant for resisting arrest and a Buchanan County warrant for assault.
Griffith was taken into custody after Missouri State Highway Patrol troopers and deputies in Livingston and Caldwell counties surrounded a building in Dawn Tuesday morning. Griffith eventually surrendered without incident. He was transported to the Daviess DeKalb County Regional Jail.
