Witnesses reported seeing text messages exchanged between the two subjects and identified the adult male as Unionville Police Officer David Banks. 

The juvenile female was identified by Unionville Police and the KRCCU. It was reported that Banks “urged” the 14 year old female to send nude pictures and also sent her a nude picture.

Banks was terminated from his employment with the Unionville Police Department and he left town shortly after.

A Putnam County arrest warrant was issued for Banks for Sexual Misconduct Involving a Child. Banks was located at a residence in Stewartsville, MO in DeKalb County. A DeKalb County search warrant was issued for this residence. The search warrant was executed shortly after midnight last Friday, February 21st by members of the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office, the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, and the KRCCU.

Banks was found at the residence and placed under arrest. Banks cell phone was seized as evidence from the residence. Banks admitted to sending and receiving pornographic images to the juvenile female that he knew was only 14 years old. 

Banks is currently being held on a $10,000 cash only bond. Other charges are pending and the investigation will continue. Anyone with information in reference to this investigation is urged to call KRCCU at (660)785-6945.
