The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man with outstanding warrants and has asked for the public’s help to find him.

The sheriff’s office is trying to locate Michael “Mike” Oleson, who has Douglas County warrants for failing to comply with court orders in battery, child endangerment, violation of a stalking protective order and criminal trespassing cases, according to information the office shared on its social media accounts Thursday morning.

The sheriff’s office asks anyone who sees Oleson or knows where he is to call it at 785-841-0007. Do not try to approach or apprehend him, the office said.

To remain anonymous, people with information can also call Crime Stoppers at 785-843-TIPS (8477). Callers may qualify for a cash reward for information leading to an arrest.

Oleson, 47, is white, stands 6 feet, 2 inches tall, weighs about 250 pounds and has blue eyes and blondish-brown hair, which may currently be buzzed close to his head, according to the sheriff’s office. He is known to frequent Eudora and surrounding areas.

As conditions of probation, Oleson had been ordered, among other things, to complete anger management classes, mental health evaluation and substance abuse evaluation, and to follow recommendations stemming from those evaluations, court records indicate. He was also ordered to stay away from victims.
