Rogersville's Top 1 (one) Most Wanted List


Investigation by the FBI lead to a residence in Christian County, Missouri, where the following vehicle driven by Young was located parked and unattended:
Black 2008 Chevrolet Silverado, Missouri license plate # 5MG-086.
Shortly thereafter, as officers/agents from the Christian County Sheriff’s Department, Missouri State Highway Patrol and the FBI began to coordinate a plan to arrest Young, Young drove the noted vehicle away from the residence. FBI surveillance followed Young several miles until he arrived in Rogersville, Missouri. The Webster County Sheriff’s Department, and the Rogersville Police Department (RPD) were dispatched to assist the FBI. Shortly thereafter, a traffic stop of Young was attempted. Upon doing so, Young fled in his vehicle, and was pursued northbound on Route B from Highway 60 in Rogersville. The pursuit lasted six to seven miles (right past Hillenblog's house) until Young abandoned said vehicle on Route B, at the Panther Creek Bridge. Young fled on foot, running West from Route B and into the woods along Panther Creek.
A parameter was set up by local law enforcement, including tracking dogs, but Young escaped capture. (upon further reflection by officers at the scene, if they would have set up a perimeter, instead of playing verbal games with the fugitive, he most surely would have been captured.)
Investigation is continuing by the FBI, Springfield, Missouri and local law enforcement.
Young is suspected of committing numerous bank robberies throughout the United States, including banks in South Dakota, Ohio, Kentucky, Minnesota and West Virginia.
Young should be considered Armed and Dangerous.
Anyone with information of Young’s whereabouts is asked to call your local law enforcement agency or the FBI, Springfield, Missouri, telephone # (417) 882-3303.

He was arrested this morning on I-44, so we can all leave our doors unlocked at night again.
