Minnehaha County's Most Wanted List Dwindling



Bookmark and Share

Minnehaha County's Most Wanted List is dwindling. In the last week alone, two of its six criminals have been arrested.

It may be Minnehaha County's Most Wanted, but a number of different local, state and federal agencies, called the Sioux Falls Area Fugitive Task Force, work together to come up with the list. Lately, their efforts are paying off.

Sgt. Mike Walsh said, "We have about 17,000 open warrants but those can range for anything from traffic tickets all the way to homicide."

There are a lot of criminals, but few like these in the Sioux Falls area. Meet 32-year-old Antoine Eagleroad. With a warrant out for his arrest for rape and sexual contact with a child, he's at the top of Minnehaha County's list for most wanted fugitives. 

Then there's Lazerick Dawon Grant. The 28-year-old is wanted on a number of different charges including failure to appear for aggravated eluding, reckless driving, and possession of marijuana.
    
Walsh said, "Generally we look at the warrants and see which ones are the most serious."

Walsh with the Minnehaha County Sheriff's Office says these men likely made the cut because of the severity of their crimes, and the number of them.

"Our Warrant Task Force is very active. If they get a warrant and get someone that needs to be apprehended because they're a danger to the community, they work it pretty hard," said Walsh.

Currently, there are only four fugitives on the list. That's because two have been crossed off within the last week. Sometimes authorities get lucky with criminals like Obidiah Loyira, the man accused of raping a 12-year-old girl in January and being in possession of child pornography. On Thursday, he turned himself in on an unrelated warrant. Then there's times where resources like the internet pay off.

Walsh said, "It generates a lot of tips and sometimes people will see someone on there that they know or that they have current information of his whereabouts and it provides us with a great deal of information and it really seems to work well."

Wanted for escape and child support, those tips helped find Carl Jerome Stanley the second. The Minnehaha County Warrant Task Force received information that he was at a Sioux Falls apartment complex. After a short standoff, he was taken to jail.

Walsh said, "Mr. Carl Stanley, the warrant task force, they found him on the apartment building on west 8th through tips and through anonymous Crimestoppers and things like that."

As for the others, they will stay on the list until they're caught. Sometimes, like today, there are as few as four people on the most wanted list, but there can be up to 8 or 10. Walsh says the task force will also put someone on the list if they receive some important new information in a case.

If you have information on any of these fugitives or know of their whereabouts, you're urged to contact the sioux falls area joint fugitive task force or crime stoppers at 367-7007.
