Fourth of July week keeps sheriff’s office busy; public help sought in stolen property case

Osage County Sheriff Laurie Dunn released a public report of arrests and criminal activity during the first week of July 2019, and is asking the public’s help in locating two individuals wanted for questioning in one case.

The sheriff reported that at 12:02 p.m. July 2, 2019, sheriff’s officers located a vehicle in Lyndon that had been stolen from Topeka. Dylan Walstrom, 25, Topeka, was arrested and charged with possession of a stolen vehicle.

Later that day, the sheriff’s office conducted a search warrant in the 4500 block of East 309th Street, near Melvern. Located at the residence were two stolen vehicles, one from Overbrook and one from Pittsburg, Kan. During this search warrant items from recent car burglaries in Melvern and Overbrook were located, along with items from burglaries in Franklin, Douglas, Crawford and other counties. The investigation is still ongoing.

Angela Bogue, 41, of the residence about two miles east of Melvern, was arrested for possession of a stimulant and drug paraphernalia, and obstruction.

The sheriff’s office is seeking to question Anthony Perry and Jessica Orton regarding the case. Anyone who knows of their whereabouts is asked to contact the Osage County Sheriff’s Office at 785-828-3121 or Crimestoppers at 1-877-OSCRIME.

The sheriff also reported that at 8:05 a.m. July 3, 2019, officers conducted a search warrant at 4473 E. 229th St., Vassar, recovering 145 marijuana plants and other drug related items. James Borders Jr., 60, was arrested in connection with numerous charges and transported to the Osage County Jail.

The sheriff’s office also arrested a man after negotiating with him to come out of his barricaded home south of Overbrook last week. Dunn reported that around 12:20 a.m. July 5, 2019, officers attempted to arrest Bradley Mitchell 28, at his residence located at 4063 E. 189th St., about five miles southwest of Overbrook. The sheriff said Mitchell had barricaded himself inside his mobile home. After negotiations with the sheriff’s office and Kansas Bureau of Investigation, Mitchell was arrested at approximately 4 a.m. without incident.

Mitchell was wanted on warrants from Osage, Douglas and Franklin counties, and the Kansas Department of Corrections.
