A brief look at crimes that shook Marion County.
Two new faces appeared on Salem’s Top Ten Most Wanted list in December, but one of the men is already in custody: Customers quickly spotted him at a local restaurant and called police.
The man, John Herriges, 40, was wanted for allegedly burglarizing several local businesses and coffee shops in Salem and Keizer. The residents who reported Herriges’s whereabouts recognized him from recent news coverage.
Salem police release the list every month with the hopes that residents will “help make a difference in our community by watching out for these subjects” and contacting officials concerning their whereabouts, officials said.
Thriller Films has sealed a multi-production deal with Cairo-based Aroma Studios and United Brothers Partnership who have an eye on cracking the American film and TV market. First up in the three-company pact is First List, an hourlong eight-episode drama series toplined by Aussie Martin Dingle Wall.
Under the co-production deal, Thriller International will sell the finished project to a network and/or major digital platform. Shooting is already underway in Los Angeles.
The series, directed by Majdi Smiri, centers on Will Scott (Wall), one of the FBI’s leading crypto-analysts who is hired to crack a heavily coded document discovered by the FBI. He soon discovers it’s a hit list, putting him in the cross-hairs of the bad guys who want it back. A double-cross makes Will one of the FBI’s most wanted as he struggles to save those on the hit list.
Europe has learned from the United States. None other than J. Edgar Hoover discussed the idea of a list of the most wanted criminals with a journalist in 1949. Soon it became clear that American newspaper readers were lusting for true crime stories, including reports about
When it comes to using social media to fight crime and promote the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, nobody outguns or outspends Sheriff Wayne Ivey. Video posted Oct. 27, 2017, by Malcolm Denemark, FLORIDA TODAY.
A production crew has been filming scenes in Brevard County this month for a possible AE Networks’ cable television show featuring Sheriff Wayne Ivey’s “Wheel of Fugitive” concept for catching criminals.
Ivey says, while nothing has been finalized, “AE has a very strong interest in it. They do love the concept.”

Lexington’s Most Wanted is a service of the Office of the Fayette County Sheriff and the Lexington Herald-Leader. (Like the sheriff’s office on Facebook.) Each week, a new photo lineup features mug shots of fugitives and information about them and warrants issued for their arrests.
SEE MUG SHOTS BELOW.
This week’s featured fugitive is Christy Torres, who is wanted on a charge of manslaughter 2nd degree. She was indicted Monday, nearly a year after a multiple-vehicle crash that killed David Gordley, 35. Torres “wantonly operated” a vehicle resulting in Gordley’s death, the indictment said.
All of the fugitives are wanted on active Fayette County warrants. If you have information regarding their whereabouts, immediately contact the Office of the Fayette County Sheriff at 859-252-1771.

Surrey RCMP has released its list of most wanted offenders this Christmas.
The ‘Top 10 Most Wanted’ list is made up of people from the Priority Target Offender (PTO) program who are currently active in the community and have outstanding warrants for a number of offences.
Targeting those who commit the majority of crimes in our community has a direct correlation to the greatest reductions in property and even violent crime, police say.
“Our holiday wish is for every one of these individuals to either turn themselves in on their outstanding warrants or have the public assist us with information that leads to their arrests,” said Surrey RCMP Corporal Scotty Schumann in a release. “Let’s ensure these offenders are behind bars as soon as possible so that we can all have a safe and happy holiday season.”
The list includes a pair of twin brothers, both men and women ages 19 to 40 years
Looked at the FBI’s Most Wanted list lately? If not, you might be surprised to learn that four of the 10 criminals on the list are immigrants — including at least two who were in this country illegally when they committed their heinous crimes.
The makeup of the list highlights the problem of illegal immigration and crime in this country that President Donald Trump raised throughout his presidential campaign — something he’s continued to emphasize, with the creation of a special unit at the Department of Homeland Security called Victims Of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE).
Of the six American citizens on the list, three are Spanish speakers. Two of those three have ties to Mexico and are thought to possibly be hiding out in that country.
At least three of the criminals on the list have ties to violent transnational gangs that did not exist in the U.S. before the 1980s.
