Locke is an idiot and should be locked up. If anyone has ever had to deal with him they would know that he is not a professional. Why does the Bella Villa Police even exist. They don't answer radio calls, all they do is pull over women and kids(way to go guys). The county police respond to real police calls and handle everything else in the area. This police station's only purpose is to raise money for itself so they can stay on the job. Locke get a clue.(Other police departments think Bella Villa is a Joke.) Bella Villa would be a better place with out a preditor like Locke as a Police Chief. I wonder who dropped the ball and put him in charge of the Police department.

Agreed Bella Villa is a joke much like many of the timy municipalities in st louis county. Also where did locke come from? Is he related to the police chief of another nearby town (Byrnes Mill) which is also a major joke to many

Having lived within 2 miles of Bella Villa for ~15 years, I can safely say those Bella Villa police are anything BUT an asset to our society. They need to be removed (and possibly prosecuted) and replaced by the county police who seem to be there anyway.

Man, if they let Locke get away with these sexual crimes, pretty soon all of the men who were going to be preist will start being wanna be police officers in Bella Villa. Enough is enough.

How can they have their own little town, Bella Villa,when they are in the county? Besides the "chief" thing, they fly around residential areas on two wheels without lights or sirens to signal a call. Isn't it true that city and county police won't chase at high speeds that would endanger other bystanders? They are all just play babies with a badge!

I was pulled over by this man about a year ago. Luckily I did not experience what some of these other women did, but I felt that something wasn't right about him. I hope he is permanately forbidden to serve as a police officer ever again.

We are not saying anything about real police officers. The real police officers in the surrounding areas are fine. Either you are not from around here or just not smart enough to realize that you are being taken advantage of. And you don't need balls to pull over women and kids.

Yes. The chief of Bella Villa IS in fact related to the chief of Byrnes Mill. He is the son of the chief in Byrnes Mill.

I wamt to know how someone could comment so strongly about something that can't possibly know the truth..
Things are not being released because the case is still pending.. Yes, I'm sure some people are out there trying to get easy money. For those who have been taken advantage of by this man are not looking for money, only justice!
Ask yourself something... What would you do if this did happen to you? I think most will agree, Police have power over everything. Woman can't let the police control them in a sexual way.! Woman must draw the line somewhere..

All I can say is that the facts are very clear and are already known. Anyone can see that the cases are BullSh... However it always takes forever for civil cases to go to court and insurance companies always give money first. Any can read the legal briefs filed with the court and see the goal is money!! If justice is to be served Locke should hire an attorney and sue. I agree no should be taken advantage of but this applies to every one.

When will everyone learn that st.louis county "the real police " are more corrupt than any muni . I have lived less than a mile away from bella villa my whole life . Every encounter that i have ever had has been nothing but professional and much better and nicer than stl county pd . You retards think that slctpd is soo much better and "the real police " The training standards are the same.
Think before you speak next time .

I find it funny all of you want to complain about bella villa especially some county officers. Why dont you look back at the recent officer involved shooting on runyon . Take a guess what muni was one of the first to respond to the scene. wait think thats right a bella villa car hmm ...... you wana dog that city and say that they are all crooked and worthless but they came running to help a FELLOW OFFICER when he needed it ! No matter what color the uniform of what agencey you work for the badge still says police and you are still sworn to protect and serve the state of missouri. you would think that you would back your fellow officers instead of dogging him . Everything with Locke is aleged no proof, and one has admitted to lieing. Whatch what you say about people one day that officer might save your life!
