Edwardsville police search for fugitive

News-DemocratApril 30, 2013 

Police are seeking help to find a fugitive who may be in Edwardsville.

Andre "Boo" L. Bennett, 52, has outstanding warrants for violation of an order of protection and failure to appear on assault charges and failure to comply with conditions of his bond.

Bennett is from the Edwardsville area, said Edwardsville Lt. Charles Kohlberg, so he may have returned to the area.

The public is warned not to approach Bennett if they know of his whereabouts.

"He's just somebody that definitely we should be cautious about," Kohlberg said. "The best route to take is to contact the police department."

Kohlberg said he did not know whether Bennett was armed.

Anyone with information about Bennett's whereabouts is asked to call the Edwardsville Police Department at 618-656-2131, or to call the anonymous tip line at 618-692-7522.

Contact reporter Elizabeth Donald at edonald@bnd.com or 618-239-2507.
