Kansas fugitive arrested in Utah


ELLSWORTH, Kan. (AP) – A man being sought for more than a year was apprehended in Utah and has been returned to Kansas to face charges accusing him of abusing a child.

The Salina Journal reports that 54-year-old Allen Lemley was booked into the Ellsworth County Jail on Friday to face a 17-month-old charge of aggravated indecent liberties with a child.

Ellsworth County Sheriff Tracy Ploutz said a warrant was filed for Lemley’s arrest in Ellsworth County in May 2015.

Ploutz said Lemley was arrested in Cache County, in northeastern Utah in September.
