According to court documents, a warrant was issued for Scott Ebling, 42, of Memphis, MO, by Knox County Associate Judge Tom Redington after Ebling skipped out on a pre-trial court hearing on Tuesday, August 11, 2015.

Ebling was scheduled to stand trial on August 24, 2015, for allegedly stealing a vehicle that belonged to the Missouri State Juvenile Office and was parked in front of the Knox County Courthouse in January. He is charged with Class C felony tampering with a motor vehicle.
