Police still searching for pair in Tuesday burglaries, thefts

The Morgan County Sheriff’s Department is still searching for a local woman and man in connection with a larceny incident in Great Cacapon on Tuesday, June 28. Residents in the area of Milo School Road and Youngblood Road reported seeing and hearing law enforcement officers in vehicles and in helicopters searching the area for hours. Police say they no longer believe the pair are in the immediate area.

Sheriff K.C. Bohrer on Tuesday said investigators continue to look for Victoria Renee Omps, 25, and Ralph Jeremy Dudley, 36. They have expanded their search into the wider region, entered the pair into a national crime database and distributed license plate information for the vehicle they are believed to be traveling in.

Omps is wanted for larceny and conspiracy to commit larceny, fleeing and eluding law enforcement. She is a white female, 5’4” and weighs roughly 138 lbs.

Dudley is wanted for wanton endangerment and being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm.  He is a white male, 5’3” and weighs 140 lbs.

The sheriff said both are persons of interest in a burglary and larceny of a dark gray 1999 Chevy Silverado  with WV registration 91C885.

The truck has not been recovered.

If anyone in the public knows the whereabouts of the two, contact the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department via 911 or through your local police agency.

Capt. Tim Stapleton and Deputy B. Knotts are the investigating case officers.

Officers were told that Dudley may have used a weapon in an attempted burglary of a residence in the Milo School Road/Youngblood Road area west of Great Cacapon.

Sheriff Bohrer said that the pair is believed to be out of the area and are not considered a danger to the general public.
