Father, son indicted on gun charges

A father and son from Russellville were indicted by a federal grand jury Friday in separate cases for illegally possessing firearms and for possessing stolen firearms.

Dale Olten Sr., 46, was charged in a three-count indictment returned in federal court in Jefferson City.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, the indictment alleges that Olten, having been convicted of a felony, was in possession of 29 rifles, shotguns and handguns on Feb. 27. Under federal law, it is illegal for anyone who has been convicted of a felony to be in possession of any firearm or ammunition. Olten Sr. has prior felony convictions for burglary, resisting arrest, stealing and receiving stolen property.

Olten Sr. is also charged with being in possession of stolen firearms and with tampering with a witness.

According to the indictment, Olten wrote in a letter to his son, Dale Olten Jr., 20, that a witness in both his case and his son's case needed to be "taught a lesson." He urged his son to have someone contact the witness, the indictment says, with the intent to influence, delay and prevent his testimony.

Olten, Jr. was charged in a two-count indictment alleging that from July 15, 2008, through Feb. 27, 2009 he was in possession of five semi-automatic pistols while he was an unlawful user of marijuana. Olten, Jr. is also charged with being in possession of stolen firearms.

Just this week, a Cole County Jury found Olten Jr. guilty of burglary charges in connection with the break-ins of two homes earlier this year. His sentencing in those cases is scheduled for next month. His father is facing similar charges.

The Oltens were caught hiding in a residence in Russellville in early March after trying to evade authorities who were seeking the pair in connection with a number of burglaries in area counties.

During the trial, Prosecutor Mark Richardson called a dozen witnesses to the stand to link Olten Jr. to the burglaries. Olten Jr. did not testify in his own defense and the defense called no witnesses.

Olten Jr. and his father, Dale Olten Sr., 46, were caught hiding in a residence in Russellville in early March after trying to evade authorities who were seeking the pair in connection with a number of burglaries in area counties.

The pair are also facing federal charges in connection with these burglaries.

Suspects thought to be involved in multiple area break-ins

The Cole County manhunt is now over.

The two men who fled from Cole County deputies after allegedly robbing a home in Eugene Friday evening were arrested at a Russellville apartment around three o'clock Sunday afternoon.

Those men are a father/son duo: Dale Olten Sr. and Dale Olten Jr. are now being held with no bond in the Cole County jail on charges of second degree burglary.

KRCG talked to Cole County Sheriff Greg White in the hours after the arrest.

He says additional charges on the Oltens are pending.

Cole County authorities found a slew of firearms while searching the Oltens home.

Sheriff White tells KRCG he believes the duo were planning to sell the weapons illegally.

Also arrested in connection with Friday's robbery was 21-year-old Jesse Patterson.

He was caught at the scene Friday.

Patterson is also charged with second degree burglary.

Update:

Two men wanted for a string of burglaries in Cole County were still on the loose Saturday.

On Friday, Cole County deputies arrested Jesse Patterson, 21, and charged him with second-degree burglary. Authorities are now offering a $500 reward for the arrest of the remaining two suspects - a father and son duo - Dale Otten Jr. and Dale Otten Senior.

When the Otten's ran from police both left their cell phones and wallets in the car, which helped police identify the two suspects.

When authorities searched the Otten's home they found a stash of rifles, pistols and knives. It's believed they were intending to sell them illegally.

Original Story:

Missouri Highway Patrol helicopters flew over Eugene Friday as police searched for three men suspected in a string of burglaries.

Sheriff's deputies were able to find and arrest a 21-year-old man, who's now at the Cole County Jail.

The man, along with two others, are all suspected in at least one Cole County break-in, possibly more.

It all started around 4:30 p.m. Friday when Miller County deputies responded to a burglary in progress near Eugene. A tipster called police to say he saw three men run from the house, which was unoccupied when they broke in.

Police blocked off an area near Route BB and H to search for the three men who ran from police. Not long into the search one of the suspects was caught and arrested.

Highway Patrol helicopters searched for the other two men but couldn't find them. However, Cole County Sheriff Greg White said they've already "positively identified" them because of the items left behind.

"Sometimes criminals do some really silly things," White said. "In this particular case they left their wallets and ID cards, as well as their cell phones."

The two men still missing are both white - one his late teens - the other, an older man with a beard. Thanks to their carelessness, White said they've already executed a search warrant for them.

Law enforcement officials believe Friday's burglary could be related to several others that happened in the area over the past few days and months.

One business owner, whose pizza place was broken into last December, said she was happy about the arrest - regardless of whether or not it's the same person who broke into her store. Damage to her restaurant was estimated to be around $1500.

"They come in, trash the place, busted a window out, put holes in the walls," said Penny Veltrop, owner of Mama Penny's Pizza. "Now that they've caught someone we're glad that they did that...That will help a lot of people around here."

White emphasized nearby residents weren't in danger during the manhunt. Police used heat-seeking cameras able to see every person in the area during the search. They could see the suspects were not close enough to be a threat to anyone else.

Viewers have asked if Elizabeth's father and brother, Dale Olten Sr. and Dale Olten Jr., would be released from prison to attend Elizabeth's funeral.

Both men are behind bars at Northeast Correctional Center in Bowling Green, Mo. on drug and burglary charges.

We checked with the Missouri Department of Corrections.

A spokesperson there says department policy says offenders are not allowed to be released for funerals or visitations.

Elizabeth's father, Dale Olten Sr., learned of her death while watching TV in prison, where he is serving a four-year sentence for drug possession, said family friend Nancy Hanks, who had aided in the search.

Normal Olten Sr. and his roommate, Jasmine Haslag

Post by Nama on Sat Oct 31, 2009 3:19 pm

Olten and his roommate, Jasmine Haslag, originally were charged with second-degree drug trafficking after they were stopped May 24, 2007, by an Eldon Police officer, in a 1977 Chevrolet truck with no tail lights.

Police said then a search of the vehicle revealed nearly 80 grams of methamphetamine, over 100 grams of marijuana, over $1,000 in cash and a pistol with the serial number removed.

Olten's case was turned over to federal prosecutors, while Haslag was named in state charges filed in Miller County.

Haslag later disappeared and her case now is being treated as a murder.

She last was seen June 18, 2007, as she was leaving Jefferson City to pick up her children in Bland. She never made it there, nor telephoned her children, which family members said was her practice.

Her car was found June 20 in a field along Route PP in southern Callaway County, between Mokane and Dixie.

Dodson said Olten's federal case was moved to Kansas City because of the publicity about Haslag's disappearance.

She was scheduled to pick up her children at 12:30 p.m. the following day from their father's residence in Bland, Missouri, but never arrived. Her green 1996 Toyota was found abandoned on June 20, in a field off Highway 94 in Mokane, Missouri, across the Missouri river. This was in the opposite direction from the route Haslag would have taken to pick up her children. The license plate and battery had been removed from the vehicle, which had nothing in it. Haslag's mother filed a missing persons report on June 21, four days after she was last seen.

Haslag's boyfriend was the last person to see her.

The boyfriend was arrested on drug charges after Haslag disappeared, and is incarcerated. Haslag was also involved with drugs prior to her disappearance, and was due to appear in court on July 18, 2007 on charges of possessing materials to make methamphetamine and intent to distribute marijuana, both felonies. She missed her court date. Haslag did not have a criminal record prior to these charges.

Normal Peggy Florence's daughter -- Jasmine Haslag

Post by Nama on Sat Oct 31, 2009 3:34 pm

Co-founder Peggy Florence remained with Elizabeth's family during most of the ordeal.

Florence also has had dealings with Elizabeth's father, Dale Olten Sr., who was one of the last people to see Florence's daughter -- Jasmine Haslag -- in June 2007 before she went missing. Haslag is presumed dead.

Olten Sr. currently is serving time in prison for a drug conviction.

Florence said Elizabeth's disappearance this week was a case of a family hurting and needing help.

"This was a family that was going through hell," she said. "If they wanted me to go, that would have been fine -- but they kept asking me to stay."

Post by Nama on Sat Oct 31, 2009 3:36 pm

"My name is Peggy Florence, I am Jasmine's mother. The last thing we know for sure is that she had called and talked to her children on Sunday the 17th of June. She told the kids and their farther that she would be picking them up at 12:30 Monday the 18th. Jasmine did not make it to pick up her children, and has not been seen or heard from seance. Her car was found on the 20th in Callaway Co. on the other side of the Missouri River. This is in the opposite direction she would of been going. I filed a missing persons report on the 21st, at that time I didn't know that her car had been located. The missing persons report was filed with Cole County Sheriffs office. The news KRCG 13 has run the story when she went missing, a few updates when the Sheriffs office stated that they believe there was foul play involved. I have done a interview with them to get the story back on the news. The local papers have also ran a few stories, Jefferson city News Tribune, The Gasconade Republican, The Unterrified Democrat, and the Fulton paper and some others. Please take the time to look in to this and let me know if you may be able to help. My e-mail psflo1@yahoo.com, for any thing else you may need to know. There is so much more hear that I do not feel comfortable saying at this time. Bless Us All Those Missing And All that Are Searching."

Task force investigating woman's disapearance as homicide

What many people feared and suspected for nearly a year is now official.

The sheriff's departments in Cole and Osage counties are treating the disappearance of Jasmine Haslag as a homicide.

Tuesday afternoon, authorities announced that, as a result of new information, a multi-jurisdictional task force has been established to investigate this case. Members of the task force include the Callaway County Sheriff's Department and the Missouri Highway Patrol's Division of Drug and Crime Control.

That's all authorities are saying publicly about the investigation. No information about possible suspects, or whether a body has been located, has been revealed.

Haslag last was seen when she left her home in Russellville on June 18 to pick up her three children at their father's home in Bland.

She never arrived.

A few days later, her car was found abandoned in a field on Route PP, off Missouri 94, between Mokane and Dixie.

Haslag's mother, Peggy Florence, has told reporters her daughter had gotten involved in illegal drugs prior to her disappearance. Now, she believes her daughter was killed to keep her from telling authorities what she knew about the local drug world.

Haslag was scheduled for a July 18 court appearance in Miller County, one day before her 32nd birthday.

She and roommate Dale Olten were charged with second-degree drug trafficking after they were stopped May 24 by an Eldon Police officer.

Police said a search of the vehicle revealed nearly 80 grams of methamphetamine, more than 100 grams of marijuana, more than $1,000 in cash and a pistol with the serial number removed.

“Jasmine had never had a record before, and she was living with that man and ... she got arrested with him,” Florence said. “She was arrested and bailed out on a $50,000 bail.

“And then, she disappeared.”

Hopes of finding some answers in the case increased in July when authorities spent a few days on the Osage River after a fisherman reported he pulled up what appeared to be a human hand. However, searchers failed to locate a body.

Florence put together funds for a private reward to help stimulate interest in the case. As late as the end of January, the Jefferson City Area Crimestoppers re-issued their call for help in this case and said they still had a $500 reward for information that could lead to an arrest.

Normal pleaded guilty to federal gun charges

Post by Nama on Mon Feb 15, 2010 10:20 am



The father of a slain mid-Missouri girl has pleaded guilty to federal gun charges.

Dale Olten Sr. was in prison on a state drug conviction when his 9-year-old daughter, Elizabeth, was killed last October in the town of St. Martins near Jefferson City. Alyssa Bustamante, who was age 15 at the time, has been charged as an adult with first-degree murder and has pleaded not guilty.

The U.S. attorney's office said Friday that Olten pleaded guilty to illegally possessing 29 guns. The weapons were found when authorities investigating a series of burglaries searched his Russellville home in February 2009.

Prosecutors say Olten admitted that 17 of the guns had been stolen.

Olten was barred from possessing guns because of previous felony convictions.

Normal Elizabeth Olten's father gets different judge

Post by Nama on Mon May 03, 2010 7:21 pm

Judge Pat Joyce granted a change of judge in a case against Dale Olten, Sr. of St. Martins, Mo.

Olten faces charges of burglary and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

He is also the father of 9-year-old murder victim Elizabeth Olten.

He asked for a different judge because Joyce is also presiding over the trial of murder suspect Alyssa Bustamante, who is charged for murdering his daughter.

Despite assurances from his lawyer, Olten was concerned over the possibility that something he might say or do in his case would prejudice the judge in the Bustamante case.

Dale Scott Olten Sr. will spend almost all of the next two decades serving a federal prison sentence for possessing firearms illegally.

The Russellville man was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Judge Nanette K. Laughrey to 19 years and seven months in federal prison, without parole.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for Western Missouri noted in a news release that Olten was sentenced as a career offender, due to his prior felony convictions.

Olten, 47, pleaded guilty on Feb. 12 to being a felon in possession of a firearm, and to possessing stolen firearms. He admitted he was in possession of 29 rifles, shotguns and handguns on Feb. 27, 2009.

The firearms were discovered when law enforcement officers, investigating a series of burglaries, executed a search warrant at Olten’s residence.

Under federal law, it is illegal for anyone who has been convicted of a felony to be in possession of any firearm or ammunition, and Olten has prior felony convictions for burglary, resisting arrest, stealing and receiving stolen property.

Olten also admitted that 17 of those firearms had been stolen.

The news release noted the case was investigated by four Mid-Missouri sheriff’s departments — in Cole, Moniteau, Miller and Moniteau counties — as well as by the Missouri Probation and Parole Division and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

He still faces other state charges, in cases transferred from Cole County to Phelps County. No trial dates have been set.

Olten was in prison on a state drug conviction when his 9-year-old daughter, Elizabeth, was killed in October 2009 near Jefferson City.

Alyssa Bustamante, who was 15 at the time, was charged as an adult with first-degree murder in the death of her young neighbor. Bustamante has pleaded not guilty and faces trial next May.
