According to multiple reports, the suspect’s cell-phone was tracked to Erie, PA on Monday. A five State area, including OH, PA, NY, MI and IN is the primary search area. Stephens is 6 foot 1 and weighs 244 pounds. He is bald with a beard. Police said he was last driving a white 2016 Ford Fusion with temporary tag E363630. Cleveland police told reporters on Monday there is no reason to believe the suspect is no longer driving that vehicle. I suggest that RECON in your area of operations with buddy teams is a worthwhile endeavor and good practice. I also suggest that if you ID the suspect or his vehicle, you should inform law enforcement and exercise containment to allow LEO to take him down.
