Brandon Dannebohm, who was wanted by the Barton County Sheriff’s Office, was captured Tuesday night in Denver, Sheriff Brian Bellendir said.
“We don’t think he had been out there very long,” Bellendir said.
On June 25, the sheriff issued a Crime Stoppers news release seeking the public’s help in finding Dannebohm, 31, who had outstanding warrants for probation violation and possession of methamphetamine. People were warned that Dannebohm is known to carry a firearm and should be considered armed and dangerous.
His name was entered in the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) system.
Dannebohm was arrested by Denver law enforcement and may face criminal charges in Colorado, Bellendir said. After checking the NCIC, authorities there contacted Barton County.
Bellendir said Barton County will seek extradition and further information will be released as it becomes available.
On May 20 of this year, Dannebohm was arrested for the no bond warrant for probation violation and possession of methamphetamine in rural Barton County after the Barton County Sheriff’s office, the Great Bend Police, and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation executed one of three search warrants. Drug paraphernalia and controlled substances were found at all three locations.
He was released on June 8 but arrest warrants were issued after an alleged violation of the conditions of his release.
The BCSO received several tips concerning his whereabouts. At 6:14 p.m. Tuesday, deputies checked a residence in Dundee where someone heard he was hiding.
