KENOSHA COUNTY -- Police describe Andrew Obregon as a person of interest in a recent homicide case -- and all weekend long, he's been accused of stealing vehicles, leading authorities on high-speed pursuits and even robbing gas stations. We are hearing from one of Obregon's alleged victims, as law enforcement officials continue their manhunt.
Investigators with the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department say two crimes which happened overnight from Saturday, October 3rd into Sunday, October 4th are the latest crimes linked to 32-year-old Obregon.
Obregon is accused of stealing a van early Sunday morning -- and the van's owner tells FOX6 News he's encouraging people to lock their doors.
Officials say Kenosha County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a “smash and grab” type burglary at the Country Side Market gas station and convenience store located at County Highway C and US 45 in Kenosha County.
A short time later, an armed robbery took place at the Speedway gas station and convenience store along State Highway 50 and Interstate 94.
Kenosha County Sheriff’s deputies became involved in another vehicle pursuit with Obregon as he fled the area of the second scene. He was operating a stolen gold-colored Ford SUV. This vehicle eventually crashed.
A short time later, an area resident reported that a new white colored Ford Transit cargo van had been stolen from a property near the area where the SUV crashed. This van had permanent (unknown) Illinois plates attached and large (4’ x 2’) green-colored lettering down the side reading “Sports Interiors.”
"He`s wanted in a murder investigation that happened not too far from here," Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth said.
Investigators say Obregon is a person of interest in the death of Tywon Anderson. 37-year-old Anderson was reported missing on September 19th. His body was found in a cornfield off Highway A on September 26th.
On Friday, October 2nd, officials say Obregon stole a black 1988 Ford Mustang and led officials on a high-speed chase.
"We do believe he is armed. People have seen a handgun in his waistband," Sheriff Beth said.
At some point, officials say he ditched the Ford vehicle.
"We lost sight of him," Sheriff Beth said.
Obregon's mother was arrested for obstructing the investigation and aiding a felon on Friday.
Officials say Obregon has a drug problem, and has indicated before that he doesn't want to be caught.
"When law enforcement finds him, he does want to go out in a blaze of glory," Sheriff Beth said.
Anyone with information about Obregon’s whereabouts is urged to call the Kenosha Sheriff’s Department at 262-605-5100. Those wishing to remain anonymous may call the Kenosha Area Crime Stoppers at 262-656-7333 or toll free at 800-807-8477.
Information leading to arrest and conviction may result in a reward up to $1,000.
