Most Wanted list updated

CLINTON — The Clinton County Sheriff’s Office has updated its Most Wanted list and is asking area residents to report sightings of the Most Wanted criminals to the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office or Crime Stoppers.

Deputy Stacey Bussie said the most wanted list was started nearly six years ago in an effort to obtain information on criminals who have committed felonies when the individual has eluded capture by law enforcement officials.

“By putting their name and photo out there to the public, we have gotten excellent responses,” said Bussie. “Of seven original individuals on the list, we caught four within the first month.”

He pointed out that those who call Crime Stoppers, do not need to give law enforcement officials their name, and the information provided could lead to the arrest of a potentially dangerous criminal.

“Crime Stoppers operates on the basis of information. It is not necessary for a citizen to leave their name, all we want is the information,” Bussie said.

Accused criminals named in the list are wanted under warrants issued following felony charges by the cities of Clinton, Camanche, DeWitt or in Clinton County.

Individuals currently listed on the Clinton County Most Wanted list include:

n John Toby Anderson, 32, is wanted on a charge of failure to register as a sex offender. He is a white male who is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 147 pounds.

n Joshua Alan Kimble, 23, is wanted on a charge of failure to register as a sex offender, second offense and failure to appear. He is a white male, 6 feet tall and weighs 170 pounds.

n John Richardson, 41, is wanted for second degree theft. He is a white male, 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 150 pounds. He has brown hair and hazel eyes.

n Steven Richardson, 37, is wanted on two counts of second degree theft. He has brown hair, blue eyes and has numerous tattoos. He is 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds.
