Update: Harrisonville Police close investigation on Archie Officer

As of June 30th, 2017 the Harrisonville Police Department has closed its investigation involving the Archie Police Officer who had been taken to the hospital on May 25th, 2017.

After the initial contact by Harrisonville Police Officers, the Officer was transported to a metro hospital for further examination. At the hospital the Archie Officer began exhibiting strange behavior and violent tendencies. 

Medical tests were conducted which did not reveal a cause for the behavior. As the investigation continued, concerns were raised that the Officer may have been targeted or unknowingly ingested an unidentified type of synthetic substance.

After extensively following up on numerous tips and possible leads, the Harrisonville Police Department can be reasonably certain that no criminal conduct occurred. The cause of the events and the Officer’s behavior remain undetermined, but the Harrisonville Police Department can confirm that no criminal charges will be sought. There are still pending lab test results but no significant information is expected to be discovered.
