I have been pulled over for lights that were not out. When I said I wanted to see for myself I was told I could not get out of my car. After the cop left I checked my lights and they were not out. They give cops a bad name.
I have lived in House Springs all of my life and can't beleive how Byrnes Mill police treat people. They should be ashamed of themselves. I see them break the law all the time. They are the criminals. They have two cops working there that were fired from jefco PD. Ed Locke and Ed locke jr were both fired for something but the city is not talking. They give House Springs a bad name.
We will be posting some things on here that may help you in the near future. But until then spread the word about this blog. We need input from people who have been affected in some way ( good or bad ) by the City of Byrnes Mill.
There are a lot of people that have been affected by things that have gone on with the Byrnes Mill Police Dept., I think that the people that really need to know what is going on, whether it be the Board or whoever, do not ever get to hear some of the things that have happened. Its almost like if you try to speak the truth that you get silenced.... I believe that this is fallout for the entire community, and there needs to be a voice that will be heard, and not have repercussions happen to them because they chose to speak out. People are afraid to say anything for the worry of retaliation.
Talk with any Highway Patrol or Jefferson Co officer and you will find out there is no love lost between them and BMPD. They are the laughing stock of law enforcement.....
I would like to know why they allow Hwy 30 towing to have a junkyard by Hoods and Taco Bell. That place looks like a dump and makes the City look bad. What a bunch of hoosiers. Every other salavage/ junkyard has a fence so people don't have to see all the junk. You would think a bunch of hoosiers live here.
The trucks say City of Byrnes Mill on them,does the city own Hwy 30 towing?
I think they only hire cops that have been fired from another police department or can't get a job anywhere else.
Who does the towing for the city? Do they have their own tow trucks?
They call Glacken to tow and inpound your car when they can,he has been around a long time and is corrupt has the people running the city.
The City must not know the history of the Glackens.But that is kind of people they hire.
We are looking into the grant money that was paid to Ed Locke Jr while he was on probation.
I think the City should have to pay back all the grant money and make restitution to all the people Ed Locke Jr gave tickets to.He should have had to go to jail for more than 10 days for all the things he has done to people.

The junkyard/Hwy 30 towing is run by Tony Glacken.The property is owned by Schnucks,I would start calling them and complain about the mess and eyesore.I think they do all of Byrnes Mills towing,it's a SCAM.
Call Schnucks and tell them you will not shop at their stores until they clean up their mess,that will get the ball rolling.
Someone is using the sunshine law to trace the grant money the city got and paid Ed Locke Jr with. I think there are some people looking into lawsuits against the city because of Ed locke Jr. There is no way the city did not know Jr was on probation for a crime in the town he was working at before.It just shows what kind of people work for Byrnes Mill and what kind of people they hire.I hope one day they get what's comming to them.
Anybody that got a ticket from Ed Locke Jr needs to sue the city.
I got a ticket for driving with my bright lights on. I was on Hwy W going into House Springs and it was about 10:30 pm. I told the cop that my bright lights were not on and he said I was lying and asked if I had been drinking.My answer was no and he gave me a ticket.I went to their joke of a court and pled my case and was told they would drop the ticket if I paid the court cost. So I did nothing wrong and had to spend my night at the kangroo court and give them 25 bucks court cost or come back to fight the ticket. Gee don't you think they have a scam going on there.
Yeah Officer Dowden is a joke too. He has no idea what his job is. The badge has went to his head.
So i thought the feds was investigating mike smith not byrnes mill...smith is lying he gave out tickets, busted people for drugs and is corrupt himself. So what is really going with Smith?
I think they are pointing their fingers at each other. They are all at fault.
We are going to find out who is looking into the accusations and get some contact info. I think everybody that has some good info that will help the feds go after the city would be helpful. I also think that when the truth comes out that they will find wrongdoing by more than just one person.
Can anyone tell me who is on the BM police force now? There seems to be a lot of new faces.
So I guess know body know the answer here...hmmm...
Can anyone answer this question at all...
