Douglas County's most wantedIn conjunction with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department, the Superior Telegram will be providing information weekly on offenders who are being sought by law enforcement. There are currently more than 3,000 active warrants in Douglas County, for everything from sex assault to failure to pay fines. The sheriff’s department has winnowed down the list to their “most wanted.” If anyone has information on these offenders, they can contact the tip line at (715) 395-1230. If they know exactly where an offender is at that moment, however, they are asked to call 911.
The following offenders have active arrest warrants:
Michael Lee Adolphson, 30, is being sought for three counts of failing support a child. He stopped paying court-ordered child support in April of 2008, according to the criminal complaint. The complaint was filed on May 22, 2009, the same day an arrest warrant was issued, according to online court records. The Douglas County Child Support Agency has had no contact with Adolphson since that date, according to the complaint.
Adolphson is a white male with blond hair and brown eyes. He is 6 feet tall and weighs 145 pounds. His birth date is May 4, 1979.
Thomas Harold Mueller, 36, is accused of theft and uttering a forgery, both as party to the crime. The charges stem from an incident in April of 2009 when Mueller and a Two Harbors woman tried to cash a counterfeit U.S. Postal money order for $955.25 at the Superior Post Office, according to the criminal complaint. The two were escorted into the postmaster’s office once the money order was found to be counterfeit. While they were left alone in the office for a few minutes, the pair stole a money order for $310 that was sticking out of a file folder on the postmaster’s desk, according to the complaint. Later that day, they cashed the stolen money order at the post office in Two Harbors, Minn.
Mueller is a white male with brown hair and blue eyes. He is 6 feet 1 inch tall and weighs 150 pounds. His birth date is March 30, 1974.
