Offender Registration Warrant Project

 

Beginning February 1, 2016, Crime Stoppers of Wichita/Sedgwick County in conjunction with the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Department, the Wichita Police Department, the United States Marshals Service, the Kansas Department of Corrections, and the Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) will join forces to collaborate on the first “Offender Registration Warrant Project”.  This project will run through the month of February, and is being kicked off by a media campaign which consists of Lamar Advertising featuring the wanted persons on a digital billboard located at Kellogg and Washington.  Lamar Advertising has partnered with Crime Stoppers in this project, and has graciously donated this space to assist with this project.  The company is based out of Topeka, KS, and has a history of working closely with other Crime Stoppers Programs in locating wanted persons.

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.

There are three ways someone can provide information to Crime Stoppers:  by calling 267-2111 or 1-800-222-TIPS.  You can also submit a tip online at www.WichitaCrimeStoppers.com or from your mobile phone by texting TIP217 then your message to 274637 (crimes). All ways are secure and anonymous. , As always, Crime Stoppers will never ask your name.

FOR THE WEEK OF JAN. 17, 2016
DEPARTMENT CASE NUMBER: 15S12611
LEAD DETECTIVE: DET. J. CRAFTON, SEDGWICK COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE

Sometime between 4:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. Dec. 13, 2015, someone broke into a home in the area of 127th Street East and 13th Street North. The burglar first tried to enter by prying open a rear door. When that failed, the suspect used a rock to shatter a window and gained entry through another door. Once inside, the burglar rifled through the residence, focusing on high-end jewelry. It is believed the suspect used a pillowcase from the residence to carry out the stolen jewelry. One item of particular interest is a 2-karat diamond ring with an approximate value of $30,000. This unique ring will stand out to anyone familiar with fine jewelry. (See attached photo.) Total loss is estimated at more than $50,000.
