Reward Offered for Federal Fugitive


The FBI is now offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest of 36-year-old Lucas Randall DeYoung. Lucas is wanted on a federal warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.  The Curry County Sheriff’s Office had previously charged DeYoung with attempted aggravated murder, attempted murder, delivery of a controlled substance and unlawful manufacture of marijuana. The charges stemmed from an investigation into the shooting of a Curry County man in December. The victim reportedly survived. Anyone with information about DeYoung’s location should contact the authorities.  A tip can be left at https://tips.fbi.gov or call the Curry County Sheriff’s Office at (541) 247-3243.
