Dustin Michael Randell

An arrest was made Oct. 3 in Taney County, Mo., on a Johnson County burglary warrant resulting from the investigation of the February 2017 burglary of the Gardner Edgerton High School.
Dustin Michael Randell is being held in Johnson County jail on $25,000 bond charged with three counts: burglary, not a dwelling; criminal damage; and misdemeanor theft. His court date is Oct. 10, 2017.
Video last February captured what was believed to be a light colored 1990s model Ford Bronco entering and leaving the area, and video retrieved from the schools security system shows three male suspects approximately 18-25 years of age.
One of the suspects suffered an injury, most likely a laceration to the hand or forearm resulting from their breaking a glass window, according to a press release issued at the time.
Due to the extent of the damage and the time needed for cleanup and repair, USD 231 canceled classes for GEHS students for Feb. 27, 2017, but students returned to school Feb. 28.
It is unknown at this time the dollar amount associated with the damages or what additional loss of property may have occurred.
