The U.S. Marshals Service is offering up to a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of two fugitives stemming from the shooting of an elderly Platte County man during an armed robbery in February 2017.
James Osler and Re’quon Dillard are believed to be at large in the Kansas City metro area following the shooting and both actively receiving assistance by family and friends.
Both men have active Platte County felony warrants.
Osler and Dillard are long-time friends from school and are often seen together in public.
Now that they are fugitives from justice, they may be in hiding together. Both are long-time residents of the metro and have multiple family members and friends in the area.
Osler AKA: “Dimps” is 6’ tall and weighs approximately 140 lbs. It is unknown whether or not he still has long hair as seen in this picture.
Osler’s criminal record includes charges for Possession of a Firearm/Unlawful Use of a Weapon in 2016. Witnesses have observed him with firearms and he is suspected of using and selling narcotics. Osler also has multiple tattoos on his hands.
Dillard AKA: “Que” is 5’9” tall and weighs approximately 130 lbs. He has a limited criminal history but witnesses have also observed him with firearms and he is known to use narcotics.
Both men should be considered ARMED AND DANGEROUS. Do Not Approach – Contact the Authorities. You can do so anonymously.
The shooting allegedly occurred during a robbery where Osler and Dillard were planning to force entry into a home and rob a family in Platte County.
The U.S. Marshals’ reward is $1,000 each for information leading directly to the arrest of Osler and/or Dillard.
Information must be submitted directly to the U.S. Marshals in order to claim this reward. Additional reward money from other sources may also be available.
Anyone with information concerning either one of these men is encouraged to contact Deputy U.S. Marshal Bryan Guthrie at (816) 560-0817.
As always, you may also contact the TIPS Hotline anonymously at (816) 474-8477. However, anonymous tips are not eligible for the U.S. Marshals reward.
