Lincoln County Jail Most Wanted

Lincoln County Idaho Most Wanted

Fraud and property crimes are the most common violations in Idaho. The Most Wanted criminals in Idaho often commit acts of theft and destruction.

Although residents of Idaho have reasons to worry about larceny-theft in their neighborhoods, other more bizarre criminal behaviors are underfoot that could have much more far-reaching effects on their lives.

Lewd and lascivious acts are perpetrated at significant rates in Idaho. Criminals prey on innocent people under the age of 16. Violent and non-violent crimes against persons, often of a sexual nature, affect both adults and children in the state. 

Idaho Most Wanted Fugitives

It is not uncommon to see Most Wanted stalkers, video voyeurs, rapists and other deviants at large. 

Stalking is a very serious crime that needs to be taken seriously. It is important for law enforcement and other professionals to discern the difference between real victims of stalking and the growing number of individuals who may have psychological problems that lead them to believe they are being abducted by aliens or plagued by ideas about gang-stalking.

The following are some of the more dangerous Most Wanted individuals in Lincoln County, Idaho and the United States.  If you see them, do not try and apprehend them yourself as they are most likely armed and dangerous. Instead call the Lincoln County Sheriff at 208-886-2250.
