Court: MU robbery suspect danger to public, no bond set

University of Missouri police arrested Treshaun Butner on Redwood Drive after he barricaded himself inside a home Wednesday night around 4:30 p.m. Several officers inside searched the home.

On Thursday, a Boone Co. judge ordered that Butner be held on no bond, stating he is a danger to public safety.

Also on Thursday, ABC 17 News learned Butner is charged for a March burglary on Sheritan Blvd.

MU police said Butner, who is not a student at the University, robbed a Mizzou student on campus near Hawthorne Hall Tuesday night.

Butner allegedly grabbed an ID case from the student, knocked him to the ground, and took $19 from the case.

While in police custody, MUPD officers discovered one pill of Xanax in Butner’s possession. He did not have a prescription for the drug and was charged with possession of a controlled substance other than less than 35 grams of marijuana.

Emergency dispatch said police in plain clothes assisted in the response.
