Auction for missing suspect’s property postponed in Boone Co.

The Boone County auction for Farrel Pride’s property and property of some relatives has been postponed until further notice.

45-year-old Pride is charged in Boone County with financial exploitation of an elderly person. That’s a class A felony. A grand jury indicted Pride in March 2014, but he has not been captured. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

The Boone County Sheriff’s Department said Pride, who lived in the Sturgeon area, is accused of bilking elderly relatives out of about $109,000. One of those relatives was terminally ill.

Boone County Sheriff’s Detective Tom O’Sullivan says the elderly couple contacted deputies in April 2013, after they realized that they had been scammed.

CrimeStoppers has offered a reward for information leading to Farrel Pride’s arrest. Anyone with information on Pride’s whereabouts should call (573) 875-TIPS.

O’Sullivan said the Boone County Sheriff’s Department would have representatives stand on the courthouse steps on Monday afternoon, to solicit bids on two properties. He confirms that the auction was postponed.
