The West Point Police Department is looking for any information on the whereabouts of Rasheda Wilson, 23, of West Point.
In addition to West Point, Wilson is wanted by the Clay County Sheriff’s Department, Oktibbeha County Sheriff’s Department and the Columbus Police Department, according to West Point Police Chief Tim Brinkley.
Brinkley said five bench warrants have been issued for Wilson’s immediate arrest, as well as other outstanding warrants. She is facing multiple contempt of court charges throughout the Golden Triangle area and has eluded law enforcement since late 2013, according to Brinkley.
Wilson has failed to appear in court on almost every charge, so no hearing has ever been conducted, according to a WPPD statement to the media.
“We don’t believe her to be armed or dangerous, but we advise officers and residents to use caution,” Brinkley said. “It’s not uncommon for suspects to evade capture and have warrants issued, but for a person to have this many is of particular concern, and she needs to be brought to justice.”
He said anyone found to be harboring Wilson is subject to arrest, as well; WPPD plans to prosecute anyone aiding or harboring her to the fullest extent of the law.
Anyone with information on Wilson’s whereabouts can contact WPPD at 494-1244 or Golden Triangle Crime Stoppers at 1-888-827-4637.
