01/31/2022

 

On early Sunday morning before 2 am on January 30th Parsons Police Officers observed multiple traffic violations involving a vehicle traveling north on 17th Street in downtown Parsons. Sgt. Brice Dickens and Officer Michael Thompson attempted to stop the vehicle. However, the car attempted to flee from the officers.

The fleeing suspect eventually struck three unoccupied parked cars as he was fleeing from the police. A 1992 Buick Century, a 2006 Hyundai Sonata and a 2016 Jeep were all struck and damaged. The owners have been notified. All three vehicles were struck when the suspect jumped from his moving vehicle and fled on foot. His vehicle continued to careen into parked cars in a parking lot in the 1700 Block of Broadway before it came to a stop.

The Driver was identified as Jason Anderson-Moseley, a 36-year-old male, who lives in Parsons was identified as the Suspect. He fled the scene on foot. A check of records finds there are arrest warrants for his arrest in Labette County on drug charges, Allen County for drug charges with nationwide extradition and the City of Parsons. Police will seek charges on Anderson-Moseley for Possession with Intent to Distribute, Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Reckless Driving, Attempting to Flee, Criminal Damage to Property, Interference with a Law Enforcement Officer, and traffic violations. Presently there is probable cause to arrest Anderson-Moseley on felony charges, police are continuing their follow-up on this case.

If anyone is aware of Anderson-Moseley's location or see him, they are urged to call the Parsons Police Department at 620-421-7060.

The suspect has prior convictions for felony robbery and drug charges in the past in SE Kansas. According to Parsons Deputy Chief Dennis Dodd, "Anderson-Moseley has had frequent contact with law enforcement throughout the region. His local list of contacts and arrests stretches past my arm. I hope this time the courts take these new felony crimes seriously."

Suspect Jason Anderson-Moseley is listed on the KBI Offender Registry as a Violent Offender for his conviction on a 2014-Armed Robbery in Pittsburg. His last know address on the public registry was 1414 Wilson Street in Parsons.

Amber Leistikow, age 19, a Parson resident was a passenger in the fleeing vehicle. She was arrested on, and charges will be requested for Possession with Intent to Distribute, Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

"Here is another example of the criminal justice system failing citizens," said Robert Spinks Parsons Chief of Police. "A multi-time convicted felon working his illegal trade from Coffeyville to Pittsburg, to Parsons and beyond. A registered violent offender, who has a fistful of outstanding arrest warrants. The revolving door of justice is failing SE Kansas. How many chances do you get to commit a felony in SE Kansas before we see these marauding felons who deal death by drugs in our communities and prey on hard working citizens committing more felonies like robbery."

According to A/Commander Kyle Wiford, "here's a perfect candidate to be added to our Parsons Registered Offender Program (PROP) that we just kicked off. We'll also work his case for the potential of violating the terms of the registered offender program which could involve additional felony charges."

This continues to be an on-going investigation and citizens are encouraged to "See It, Hear It, Report It." If anyone has any further information on this incident or any other criminal activity, please contact the Parsons Police Department at 421-7060 or call the Tip Line at 421-7057 or email at tips@parsonspd.com.
