Sheriff’s Office “Most Wanted” Poster Updated
Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones announces the release earlier this month of the second edition Sheriff’s Office “Ten Most Wanted” poster. Publication of the first “Ten Most Wanted” poster was back in February, 2006, and five of the individuals featured on that poster have since been taken into custody, thanks, in part, to information and tips obtained from the public. The remaining five persons from that poster are now joined by five new faces.
The new poster is comprised of nine males and one female, with various charges including Rape, Kidnapping, Aggravated Murder, Escape, Felonious Assault, Failure to Register as Sexual Predator, and Felony Non-Support. The posters are being distributed to all local law enforcement agencies, as well as posted on the Sheriff’s website at www.butlersheriff.org and in the lobby of the Sheriff’s Office, on Hanover Street, in Hamilton.
Sheriff Jones considers getting these criminals off the streets a high priority. Anyone with information concerning the where-a-bouts of any of these wanted persons is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at (513) 785-1300, or call 9-1-1, or contact their local law enforcement agency.
Note: as “the ink was drying” on the new poster, one individual, Herve N. Gant, wanted for Felonious Assault and Child Endangerment, was captured in the Chicago, IL, area on July 8, and is in the process of being extradited back to Ohio.
