Wanted fugitive: Carrol Wiles

Carrol Wiles Jr., also known as “Boog,” is a wanted fugitive, according to Crime Stoppers. He has multiple outstanding felony warrants, including felon in possession of a firearm.
“Help get Wiles out of our community,” the press release says. “Please share to spread the word.”
Tips that lead to Wiles’ arrest are eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
Aside from the charges in Greene County, Wiles is facing charges in Christian County for identity theft or attempt, value $501-$5,000; receiving stolen property; forgery; and resisting arrest/detention/stop by fleeing, creating a substantial risk of injury/death to any person.
Wiles, 40, allegedly stole items from unlocked vehicles at a Nixa day care on Dec. 14.
The probable cause statements alleges that Wiles and a second suspect, Ozark’s Jessica Marie Goodwin, went to Nixa Walmart and purchased items with the stolen credit cards.
In a Dec. 14 Headliner News article, law enforcement said the holiday season often becomes a temptation for people to commit a burglary — especially when it is a crime of opportunity, like unlocked vehicles.
“It is a really good time of the year because people are getting into this holiday spirit and it’s a spirit of giving. It’s loved ones and food, it’s Christmas and snow,” Christian County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Jeff Lofton said. “Everybody is getting into this mode and personal safety and security might be getting pushed back a little bit because people are enjoying their lives.”
Because robbery is a crime of opportunity, Lofton said the goal is to make the act difficult. If the theft is a challenge, often the perpetrator will give up and move on.
“The more hurdles for somebody to have to go through to get your things, the better,” Lofton said.
