Konnink Ahold announced Tuesday that it has successfully completed the sale of U.S. Foodservice to a consortium of Clayton, Dubilier & Rice Fund VII, L.P. and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co L.P.  This follows the agreement announced on May 2, 2007 on a purchase price of $7.1 billion. Closing of the transaction was subject to the fulfillment of customary conditions, including anti-trust clearance and approval by Ahold's shareholders which was obtained at an Extraordinary General Meeting held on June 19, 2007.

The Dent County Sheriff’s Department released their reports. The Dent County Sheriff’s Department received two separate reports of an attempted burglary at the Gano Store located off of Highway 19 north. One was reported on June 25th at 8:30 in the morning and the other was on June 27th at 10:15 in the evening. It was reported that two subjects were attempting to break into the store and fled on foot when confronted. Two Sheriff Deputies responded and were assisted by the Missouri State Highway Patrol. A search of the area was conducted and upon returning to the store to speak with the witnesses, one of the witnesses produced a male who was identified as a suspect. Another citizen had chased a person on foot from the scene and located the suspect in the woods. The suspect returned with him to the store. Further investigation led to a black bag being taken into evidence containing a pry bar, bolt cutter, adjustable pliers, a screw drive and a set of metal knuckles. A male juvenile was taken into custody and later released to his father. The investigation is continuing. On June 27th at 4:30 in the afternoon, the department received a 911 call reporting a domestic in progress at a residence located off of Dent County Road 418. The incident was reported to have occurred from a threat of physical violence toward a family member and this led to a physical altercation. As a result a 43-year old male was taken into custody pending charges of domestic assault. Anyone with any information regarding these incidents is asked to please contact the Dent County Sheriff’s Department by calling 729-3241.
