RCPD offers $2,000 reward for arrest of a burglary suspect

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - The Rapid City Police Department is looking for a man they consider a "dangerous warrant subject,” offering a $2,000 reward.

The Community Reward Fund is offering the cash for information leading to the arrest of 23-year-old Saul Crowe of Rapid City. Police say he might be calling himself by his alias, Saul McCloskey.

The warrant relates to a Sept. 6 burglary in which Crowe fled from an officer conducting an investigation into drug activity at a home in the 400 block of East Fairlane Drive. After fleeing, police discovered that a nearby residence had been burglarized. It is believed that Crowe is involved in the burglary. After searching the path of Crowe’s escape, police recovered a semi-automatic handgun along with a discarded loaded magazine for the weapon.

There is also a federal warrant for Crowe’s arrest for a supervised release violation related to unlawful possession of a firearm.

Police interest doesn’t end with the burglary. Crowe is also wanted for questioning about possible involvement in an Oct. 25 shooting.

Police want to talk with Crowe about another man who was found with a serious but non-life-threatening gunshot wound on Stumer Road. Earlier, there was a report of gunshots at an apartment on the 1700 block of North Seventh Street. Police found several bullet holes but no victim at the Seventh Street apartment.

According to an RCPD release, Crowe should be considered armed and extremely dangerous. He should not be approached. Anyone with information about his whereabouts should contact Det. Ryan Gebhard at 394-4134. An anonymous tip can also be sent by texting ‘RCPD’ and the information to 847411.

“The circumstances behind Mr. Crowe’s burglary warrant demonstrate that he’s willing to do anything to evade capture by authorities,” says Captain John Olson of the RCPD’s Criminal Investigation Division. “His capture is one of the top priorities of the RCPD, and we hope that the inclusion of a reward for information leading to his arrest will help us find him.”
