Vehicle Stolen in Barton County Friday Recovered in Wichita, Fugitive Still At Large

A vehicle that was stolen in the Barton Hills area last Friday night was found in Wichita on Tuesday. The 1988 Dodge Dakota pickup was turned over to the Wichita Police Department for impoundment. The vehicle was reported stolen the same day that a vehicle stolen from Rooks County allegedly by wanted fugitive Michael Aaron Jayne was discovered in the Cheyenne Bottoms area. Jayne is wanted by federal authorities for a parole violation in Oregon. Authorities called off the search for Jayne in the Barton County area Sunday afternoon after Barton County Sheriff’s Office received reports from the US Marshall’s Office that Jayne had left the area. Jayne is described as a 5 foot 10 inch white male weighing 180 pounds with brown eyes and blonde hair. No further details are available at this time, and the investigation is ongoing.
