On July 21, 2015 in Alfalfa County, Oklahoma authorities have arrested Tena Frances Ellison, 48, on a Livingston County arrest warrant for alleged class C felony Check Violation of $500 or more.
Ms. Ellison’s information was listed on our website July 23, 2012, being almost 3 years to the day when she was arrested. During that time our office received numerous tips of her whereabouts ranging from St. Joseph, locations in Iowa, and now Oklahoma.
Since beginning our MOST WANTED website in 2011, Ms. Ellison marks the 100th arrest of a "Most Wanted" fugitive based on TIPS generated from the website.
Numerous others have been arrested by law enforcement and many have surrendered upon learning they were placed on the website.
The primary purpose of the Most Wanted website is to increase community awareness, bring those wanted before the Courts, assist crime victims, and reduce crime which makes our county safer.
Thank you for your support.
