Clark County Sheriff’s deputies are on the lookout for a dangerous wanted man who was last spotted in the Fargher Lake area. Deputies responded to a 911 call Thursday afternoon involving an unwanted individual camped out on private property. They found a stolen vehicle allegedly taken by Kody Dean Olsen, 35, who is wanted by the U.S. Marshals Service on federal arrest warrants, according to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.

He’s described as 5 feet 8 inches tall with hazel eyes and a bald head. Police say Olsen is dangerous and should not be approached. He’s believed to be on foot in the Fargher Lake area and may attempt to steal another vehicle, the sheriff’s office said.

A reverse 911 call was sent to those living in the area, asking them to report Olsen to 911 if they see him or anyone suspicious. Fargher Lake residents were also advised to stay indoors.
