MUPD arrest wanted man accused of stealing and harassment at local hospital

University of Missouri police arrested Brandon Harrison on Wednesday after officers responded to Women’s and Children’s Hospital for a wanted subject.

According to the probable cause statement, Harrison had two active warrants out for his arrest in Boone County and two non-extraditable warrants out of Texas.

Police said when they responded to the hospital, a female patient told them that Harrison was in her room and he was unwanted.

Officers said they tried to open the door to the room but there was an object behind the door preventing it from being opened all the way.

Harrison eventually exited the restroom carrying a large black backpack, police said.

The female patient told officers that Harrison had showed up to her room unexpectedly and became argumentative. She also claimed that Harrison was looking for money and was possibly under the influence of drugs.

The woman said at one point during their interaction, Harrison moved the bed side table and a chair in front of the hallway door to prevent anyone from getting into the room. The woman told officers she was afraid of Harrison.

Police said that the woman found three dollars were missing from her jeans and believed Harrison took the money.

According to the probable cause statement, Centralia Police had information that Harrison had been talking about committing an armed robbery and was located with ammunition in his backpack.

Harrison was charged with harassment, trespassing and stealing.
