Arrest of Justin Steele Lucas
On February 20, 2019 Camden County Deputies, along with personnel from Probation and Parole, responded to an apartment located in the 800 Block of W. US Hwy 54 in Camdenton, Mo., reference checking on Justin S. Lucas, age 33, a registered sex offender.
Upon searching the residence, numerous items of illegal drugs were located which included marijuana and methamphetamine. Because of two children, age 2, being in the home where they had access to illegal drugs, DSS children's division was contacted.
As part of Justin Lucas's sex offender stipulations, he is not to loiter within 500 feet of a daycare and not to reside within 1000 feet of a daycare. Where Lucas was living, violated that restriction.
