Crawford Co man wanted for theft ... and shooting at kids

Kevin Griffin

Crawford County deputies are searching for a man they consider armed and dangerous.  

Kevin Griffin, 41, of Rolla, is wanted on an active warrant for a parole violation and now for also shooting at some kids.

It was yesterday when officers were called to a remote location just south of Sullivan to investigate a theft.  While a deputy was investigating that case, he heard gunshots.  The deputy then spoke with some kids in the area who told them they spotted Griffin trying to flee the area when he officer arrived.  When they tried to detain Griffin for the deputy, Griffin fired shots to get away.  No one was injured.

The Crawford County Sheriff's Office says that if you spot Griffin, contact them immediately but do NOT try to make contact with him.
