Police trying to find some of their Most Wanted suspects
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Police agencies in Michiana one of their priorities for 2014 is locating people with outstanding warrants. South Bend Police say there are thousands of outstanding warrants in St. Joseph County.
Three weeks ago, Ryan Jamal Earl allegedly led the Berrien County Sheriff's Office on a high speed chase that started in Berrien County and ended in South Bend.
"He's a drug dealer and he's selling drugs to our community in Michigan and your community in Indiana," said Berrien County Sheriff Paul Bailey.
Earl is still on the run.
"Anybody who has fled the way that he did, went into hiding, and obviously is still wanted on warrants is a risk to everybody whether it be the police, the citizens, whoever it may be that he encounters," said Lieutenant Scott Hanley of the South Bend Police Department.

"Anytime they see anything suspicious or know somebody that's committed a crime, call the police department, any one of the agencies in St. Joe County or lower Michigan. They can also call Crime Stoppers," said Hanley.
