SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — The Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office is asking for information on the whereabouts of a man suspected of several crimes.
35-year-old Brandyn Smith, who also goes by ‘King’, is wanted for murder, robbery and kidnapping — all with the use of a deadly weapon. The warrant for his arrest is out of Las Vegas, but there’s a chance he’s here in Sioux Falls.
“The Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office was contacted and given information that this individual was possibly spotted in town or they may have seen him in town,” Adam Zishka, patrol captain with Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office, said.
The Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office doesn’t have many details about Smith’s crime, but his photo has been posted elsewhere on the internet. Family members of a woman killed in a violent home invasion are also sharing Smith’s photo.
Here’s what we know about that crime. On March 25th, 24-year-old Natalie Manduley was killed during a violent, targeted home robbery.
“We believe the motive was that the boyfriend had expensive jewelry in the house,” Lieutenant Ray Spencer with the Las Vegas Metro Police said.
Spencer says three armed men went into the victim’s home and there was a shoot out. Two of those men have since been arrested, but the search for the third man continues. The victim’s family believes it’s Smith.
Smith’s arrest warrant lists the same crimes the other men face.
“If you see him or any other wanted individual that we’re posting about, which we frequently do online, what we’d ask you to do is contact 911 and let the metro dispatch know the circumstances surrounding what you’re seeing so law enforcement can follow up,” Zishka said.
Authorities haven’t said what brought Smith to Sioux Falls or if he has any ties to the area.
Smith is a 6’0 black man weighing approximately 220 lbs.
