Highway Patrol Arrests Denver Man on 26-Year-Old Warrant
He could ride, but he couldn't hide.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol arrested a Denver resident on Sunday who had been on the lam for 26 years with a warrant for his arrest from California, according to a news release.
A trooper stopped Kirk T. Bush, 46, for a motorcycle headlight violation while riding south on Interstate 25 about 30 miles north of Wheatland, according to the news release from Patrol Sgt. David Wagener.
The trooper took Bush into custody because he didn't believe Bush's alias of Troy T. Stone, which in turn spurred more investigation.
Once Bush's identity was determined, troopers found an active U.S. Marshals warrant out of San Diego County, Calif., for drug offenses. The warrant had been entered on June 8, 1989.
Bush was arrested without incident and was taken to the Platte County Detention Center in Wheatland.
He was charged with interference with a peace officer for providing false information, misdemeanor marijuana possession, a driver's license violation and being held on the 26 year old warrant.
