Most Wanted In Minnehaha County

Most Wanted In Minnehaha County

With the click of the mouse, anyone is able to see which fugitives are being sought out by law enforcement. The Minnehaha County Most Wanted list puts faces to the crimes with hopes of gaining more information.

"Obviously, we have a lot of felonies and wanted people, but maybe it's something where we're looking for the public's help. We don't have addresses for them or we've lost or don't have any more leads," Minnehaha County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Jason Gearman said.

The list is a key part of bringing fugitives to justice, and the Joint Fugitive Task Force welcomes any tip that comes in.

"We get tips daily on wanted people, whether they're on the website or not. We also have the GotWarrants site where you can look up anybody you want and see if they have warrants," Gearman said.

Derek Arapahoe was on the list until he was arrested Thursday morning after a nearly eight-hour standoff. He was wanted on two outstanding felony warrants. Gearman says the site didn't directly contribute to his eventual arrest, but he knows the site is essential to many criminal investigations.

"We can get information to the public that helps us find a lot of these people, especially when we're running into road blocks where we can't find them anymore," Gearman said.

The Minnehaha County Most Wanted list has aided in the capture of numerous fugitives, and this list can go well beyond the borders of Minnehaha County.

"We'll go anywhere in the area to look for fugitives. So, we're not limited to just Minnehaha County in putting them on the website. If needed, we'll expand," Gearman said.

If you would like more information about the site, visit the Minnehaha County Most Wanted list as well as the GotWarrants resource.
