At 1:50 a.m. on Tuesday, March 22, 2016, a man approached AOK Pawn and Retail at 7310 W. Central from the northwest. He was filmed on a surveillance camera walking through the parking lot to the west of the shop, then across to its front door. He hesitated near the front door to make sure there were no witnesses.

When he didn’t see anyone, he used a tool to smash in the door and walked directly to the wall where the guitars and banjos were hanging. He picked up three guitars and a banjo and left through the same hole he created to get in. More video shows him carrying the instruments back to the northwest. The entire crime took less than three minutes. The suspect is male, but the video quality is too poor to determine his clothing, race or age.

The objective of this project is twofold; to locate and arrest all of the targeted violators, and to bring community awareness to the Wichita/Sedgwick County Crime Stoppers Program. Crime Stoppers is one of several programs that is sponsored by the Wichita Crime Commission.  Both the Crime Commission and Crime Stoppers is comprised of community members who volunteer their time and care about solving crime in our community.  Crime Stoppers is asking the public for help with this initiative by supplying any information the public might have regarding these offenders.  The Crime Stoppers Board has voted to increase the minimum reward to at least $500.00 for any information provided through Crime Stoppers that leads to the arrest of any of the offenders included on the poster.   Citizens are reminded that in order to be eligible for a reward through Crime Stoppers, the tip must be submitted to Crime Stoppers in one of three ways listed below.

A poster of all wanted persons will be available to all media outlets and will also be disseminated on social media. All offenders have active felony warrants for failing to register as a violent or sexual offender, pursuant to Kansas State Statue KSA 22-3902.  Several of the offenders on the poster have additional felony warrants.  The fifteen (15) offenders included in this project have been selected by the Sedgwick County OFFENDER REGISTRATION UNIT.
