Recognition for Exemplary Service
On August 12, 2018, Deputy Strom received a report of the parental kidnapping of Braedence Jones, age 6, by his biological mother, Aubrey Ferguson. There were many hurdles to overcome and disappointments along the way. For five months, Deputy Strom pursued this case, never giving up. On January 8, 2019, Braedence was located at a residence in Laclede County, largely due to interdepartmental communication, cooperation, and tenacity of Deputy Strom.
