Since the release of Denver's top-fifty-most-wanted-criminals list, we've kept you up to date with those who've been arrested:
Today, four more: No. 16, David Bowman, No. 32, Sabrina Mitchell, No. 41, Richard LaRusso and No. 42, Raymond J. James. Unfortunately, no exciting tales of capture: Indeed, a Denver Police Department release acknowledges that three of the twelve fugitives checked off the roster thus far turned themselves in.
Look below for that release, plus photos and details about Bowman, LaRusso and James.
With Your Help, The 50 Most Wanted List Shrinks by 12 (Denver, CO - March 19, 2010)
Less than a week after unveiling Denver's 2010 50 Most Wanted Fugitive List, twelve of the listed fugitives have been taken of the street. All of the captured fugitives have been on the run for an extended period of time. Many of would have not been arrested with out your help. We have received several tips from the community that have lead to the location and arrest of these suspects. Assistance from the media has also been very helpful as three of the suspects saw their names listed in the Denver Post and local television outlets, and turned themselves in.
The captured fugitives include: #5 Samuel Crespin, #10 Shannon Spicer, #11 Andrew Cross, #16 David Bowman, #21 Louis Olona, #25 Scott Hillier, #32 Sabrina Mitchell, #33 Freddie Ray Lazzo, #38 Jharel Bobby Jones, #41 Richard LaRusso, #42 Raymond J. James, and #47 Alicia F. Esquibel.
As several names still remain on The 2010 50 Most Wanted List, we continue to ask your help in bringing these individuals to justice. If you have any information regarding the whereabouts of any wanted fugitive, please contact your local police department. If you wish to remain anonymous you may do so by contacting Crime Stoppers. You can reach Crime Stoppers by visiting their website at www.metro-denvercrimestoppers.com or by calling their 24- hour tip line at (720) 913-STOP (7867) or text CRIMES (274637). If the information you provide leads to the arrest and charging of a wanted individual, you can receive a cash award up to $2,000.
