Prosecutor seeks those on outstanding warrants

By Herald Staff

Dubois County Prosecutor Anthony D. Quinn announced on Friday an ongoing emphasis to seek criminals who are wanted on outstanding warrants in the community.

Law enforcement is looking for Salvador Barco, now age 35. Barco is wanted for failing to appear in a 2013 felony charge of dealing in cocaine. The warrant on Barco was issued May 23, 2013. According to his 2013 booking record, Barco’s address was in Dale.

Quinn is encouraging anyone who has information on the whereabouts of Salvador Barco to contact the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office at 812-482-3522. He also encourages Barco and others with known outstanding warrants to consider turning themselves in to the police department to face their charges.

Quinn said in a Friday press release that he hopes the renewed attention to outstanding cases will result in locating and arresting suspects and bringing responsible parties to justice.

“Our renewed focus on seeking arrests in these cases with outstanding warrants has already resulted in a few arrests,” he said. “These recent arrests are thanks to the hard work of the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department, the Jasper and Huntingburg Police Departments, area County Departments, and the Indiana State Police and I am grateful for our partnership.”

Among the recent arrests were John J. Bickerest IV, age 35, of Jasper and Carl Young, age 53, of Huntingburg.

Bickerest was wanted on an outstanding warrant dating back to Feb. 20, 2020, for failing to appear for a probation revocation matter in a 2016 case for dealing in a narcotic drug. Bickerest was picked up in Crawford County and taken into custody, according to the release.

Carl Young was wanted in various matters, including a new charge for failure to return to lawful detention, based on Young absconding from work release. He also had outstanding warrants for three petitions to revoke work release due to absconding. Young is currently incarcerated in Spencer County.

It is important to note all charges mentioned in these cases are merely allegations and all suspects are considered innocent unless or until proven guilty in a court of law, Quinn said in the release.
