Who are the Most Wanted?

By AMBER DILLEY

The Barren County Sheriff’s Office most wanted lists, started almost two years ago, have been very successful, according to Sheriff Chris Eaton.

“We wanted to make the community more aware of what was going on. Who we were looking for,” Eaton said. “We started with a 10 most wanted, but found we had 12 people we wanted on there and then later on, we decided to do one for child support.”

The sheriff’s office runs a most wanted list and a most wanted: child support list for those owing for non-support.

“Not long after we first started, we had sheriff’s offices from across the United States who wanted to know how to start one up,” Eaton said.

It wasn’t long before the list had to be replenished.

“In no time, we caught the first 12,” he said. “We just keep adding more people on and it’s been probably the best project we’ve done in my term.”

If anyone has any information regarding the people listed, contact the Barren County Sheriff’s Office at 651-2771.
