Police seek info after indecent exposure

The Aiken Department of Public Safety is asking for the public's assistance in identifying a man investigators believe may have information related to an incident of indecent exposure during which a young juvenile was the victim.

The man police are seeking is believed to have been driving a mid-sized extended cab pickup. The incident occurred at the Walmart on Richland Avenue.

Anyone with information related to the identity of the individual is asked to call Aiken Public Safety Det. Larry Schander at 803-642-7752.

Man wanted in Aiken County captured

A man wanted by authorities in three Georgia counties and in Aiken County was captured last week by authorities in McDuffie County, Ga.

Jason W. Broome, 32, was wanted by authorities in McDuffie, Warren and Columbia counties and in North Augusta for vehicle break-in, vehicle theft and financial transaction card fraud, according to the McDuffie Progress.

Officers from multiple agencies, including the McDuffie and Warren county sheriff's offices, the Thomson Police Department and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation surrounded a trailer on Clark-Reeese Road after they received a tip that Broome might be there.

Broome had been sought in a daylong manhunt on April 12 but escaped, the newspaper reported.

Police search for man, say he shot ex-wife

The Aiken County Sheriff's Office is searching for a man they say shot his ex-wife earlier this month.

Frank Munns, 48, of Beard Road in Beech Island, allegedly shot his ex-wife during a confrontation just before noon on April 6, according to a sheriff's report. The victim told offices she was returning home when she was approached by Munns.

Munns reportedly discharged a weapon described as a pistol, striking the victim at least twice. The report did not indicate where the victim was shot. The victim was transported to Georgia Regents Medical Center.

Sgt. Jason Feemster said the Sheriff's Office has obtained warrants for Munns' arrest. Munns is considered armed and dangerous.

 “We're asking if anyone does come across him to contact local law enforcement as soon as possible so that we can apprehend him,” Feemster said.

Munns is described as white, 6-foot-3, about 210 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.
