CCSO ARREST - Wesley R. Dickey



On 6/12/2017 at approximately midnight, Camden County Deputies responded to a disturbance in progress at an address on Rabbit Road.  A female had locked herself inside an RV to avoid contact with W. Dickey.  While enroute deputies were advised that the suspect was attempting to set fire to the RV with the female victim still inside.

The female victim called a neighbor for assistance when she smelled smoke.  The neighbor came to the victim's aid and while stopping Dickey from lighting the fire, was assaulted by Dickey.   The neighbor returned to his residence and called 911 at which time Dickey fled into the woods.  

When a deputy arrived, he ordered Dickey out of the woods. Dickey exited the woods and then resisted arrest.  Dickey was placed under arrest and transported to the Camden County Detention Center.  

Dickey, age 46 from Camdenton, has been charged with Arson 1st Degree ($50,000 Bond), Assault 3rd Degree, Resisting Arrest (No Bond), Warrant for Contempt of Court (No Bond).

The victim and neighbor both refused medical attention.  Thanks to the neighbor, Dickey was unsuccessful in throwing the lit paper into the gas tank of the RV.
