Welcome to your news update.

FUGITIVE ON THE RUN

A warning from the FBI in Minnesota, an armed and dangerous man is on the run.

They say 21-year-old Derek Paddy is wanted for an armed robbery from Thanksgiving Day on the Red Lake Indian Reservation,  and a shooting last Thursday.

It's not clear if anyone was hurt in the shooting.

It's believed Paddy may have been in a Black Chevy Impala and heading toward Warroad or International Falls last week.

He's 5 feet 11 inches tall, 180 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

He also has several tattoos, including the words dream catcher, loyalty, chi town native, and pistol, as well as a dollar sign on his hand.

ADOPTION SCAM

The Stutsman County Sheriff's Office has passed on its investigative paperwork, to review possible charges against Betty Jo Krenz.

She is a woman from Woodworth, North of Jamestown.

Krenz is accused of staging adoptions to hopeful families and asking for thousands of dollars in the process.

Alleged victims say she took photos of children that did not belong to her and used them to mislead hopeful families.

These families say Krenz used her background as a Spirit Lake social worker to produce fake adoption papers.   

The Sheriff's Department confirmed it's passed the case on to the State's Attorney.

A detective also tells us BCI has also passed on its case file.

Krenz has told WDAY before that she has 'no comment.'

LANEY'S FINAL TERM

After nearly 12 years of leading, law enforcement in Cass County Sheriff Paul Laney will hang up his badge.

Laney says he will not run for a fourth term as sheriff.

Laney, a decorated sheriff with national awards, also spent time as a Fargo Police Officer for 18 years.

Even though the decision was difficult, he says he's ready to take life at a slower pace and enjoy it with loved ones.
