Jessie Allen Added to Top 15 Fugitive List, Suspected to be in Tulsa or Sapulpa
Intel: Allen may be dressed as a woman
OKLAHOMA CITY – Agents with the Oklahoma Department of Corrections Office of the Inspector General have added Jessie Allen to the Top 15 Fugitive list.
Allen, 36, was serving an eight-year sentence for concealing stolen property and possession of methamphetamine. He was released on probation in September 2016. Allen was listed as an absconder by his probation officer in January after failing to make contact.
Fugitive agents have gathered intelligence and suspect Allen is in the Tulsa or Sapulpa area, using and possibly trafficking methamphetamine. Agents consider him armed and dangerous.
After interviews with Allen's associates, it has been discovered he will go into public dressed as a woman to avoid being identified during daylight hours.
Allen has been placed on the Top 15 Fugitive list after a recent report where he allegedly pulled a pistol on the father of his ex-girlfriend, his known membership in the Indian Brotherhood gang and his history of violence.
Corrections Director Joe M. Allbaugh said the department is calling on the help of the public to bring down another most wanted fugitive.
“Allen is a dangerous criminal, a threat to public safety and needs to be brought back to custody immediately before he can harm anyone," Allbaugh said. “The public has been instrumental in the past by submitting tips, helping us bring down the most wanted in the state. This situation is no different.”
Allen is 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighs approximately 190 pounds.
A career criminal, he has been in and out of prison since 1998 for various crimes, including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, felony firearm possession attempted larceny and possession of methamphetamine.
Officials ask the public if Allen is seen or his location is known, to not approach and call law enforcement immediately.
Additionally, authorities ask if anyone has information on Allen available to call local law enforcement, the DOC fugitive warrants division at (405) 425-2570 or submit an email with information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All information is kept strictly confidential.
