Escaped Michigan parolees could be in Kokomo


Police in central Indiana are looking for two men who escaped from a Michigan residential re-entry program two weeks ago. Officers say the men, and the two women who are accompanying them, should be considered armed and dangerous.

On Thursday morning, Kokomo Police found a stolen car that was linked to the men, who are identified as Kenneth Lee Grauman II, 32, and Gregory Allen Bradshaw, 23.

The white Ford Taurus with Michigan license plates was left in a Kroger parking lot early Thursday morning with the driver's window down and the keys left in the ignition. Officers learned that the car had been stolen from Allegan, Michigan.

Witnesses told police they saw two men and two women go into the store, then leave on foot.

The Kokomo Tribune reports later Thursday, police responded to a call of four suspicious people, but did not find anyone when they arrived. Minutes later, the Howard County Sheriff's Department received a report of a stolen GMC pick-up truck in the area of Defenbaugh and Malfafa.

A farmer told police he left his keys in the ignition while he plowed a field in the area. The truck has a Purdue University license plate and a tool box in the bed. Police say there were also weapons in the truck.

Police are looking for:

Kenneth Lee Grauman II, 32, 5'10", 150 lbs, Caucasian

Gregory Allen Bradshaw, 23, 5'11", 185 lbs, Caucasian

Lauralee Grauman, 29, 5'2", 160 lbs, Caucasian

Brittany Rector, 17, 5'4", 130 lbs, Caucasian

Police say they may still be in the Kokomo area. If you see them, don't approach them. Call the Kokomo Police Department at 765-459-5101 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800 222 TIPS where you may qualify for a cash reward.
