Rapid City police tag Saul Crowe as 'most wanted'

RAPID CITY S.D. (KEVN) - The Rapid City police are still looking for a man they now call the city’s “most wanted fugitive.”

Saul Crowe, a 23-year-old Rapid City man who also calls himself Saul McCloskey, is wanted in connection with a burglary, drug activity and a shooting.

“Crowe’s criminal history shows a pattern of dangerous behaviors,” says Captain James Johns of the RCPD’s Patrol Division. “The most concerning element of those behaviors is that he commits crimes with firearms. He should be considered armed and especially dangerous. That’s what makes him Rapid City’s most wanted fugitive, and it’s in the community’s best interest to get him off the streets.”

A $2,000 reward from the Community Reward Fund still exists to be paid out for information that leads directly to Crowe’s apprehension. The RCPD continues to receive public tips about his whereabouts.

Currently, two warrants exist for Crowe’s arrest:

• A Pennington County warrant for an early September burglary. The burglary occurred after Crowe fled from an investigation into drug activity. During the foot chase, Crowe reportedly dropped a pistol, along with a loaded magazine for the pistol.

• A federal warrant for a supervised release violation related to unlawful possession of a firearm.

Police say Crowe is also wanted for questioning about an Oct. 25 shooting the 1700 block of North Seventh Street for a report of gunshots heard outside of the building. Police located several bullet holes on the outside of an apartment at the address, but no victims. A shooting victim was found a short time later at 100 Stumer Road.

“We’ve received a good number of tips from the public,” says Captain John Olson of the RCPD’s Criminal Investigation Division. “We believe Crowe is still active in the Rapid City area and we want to encourage the public to keep sending us their information regarding Crowe’s whereabouts.”

Anyone with information about his whereabouts should contact Det. Ryan Gebhard at 394-4134 during normal business hours. After hours, information requiring a timely police response can be shared by calling the RCPD’s non-emergency dispatch line at 394-4131. An anonymous tip can also be sent by texting ‘RCPD’ and the information to 847411.
