Wig wearing suspect pleads in LV court

(KAIR)--A 39-year-old St. Joseph, Missouri man who used a blonde wig in an attempt to conceal his identity has been found guilty on an individual count of attempted interference with law enforcement.

According to a release from the office of Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson, Simon Pohl ran from Leavenworth police officers on August 15, while wearing a wig. Pohl was known to police and had warrants out for his arrest. Pohl was walking near 12th and Ottawa Streets when a uniformed police officer confronted him. The officer asked Pohl to stop, but Pohl continued walking away. As Pohl walked away, he denied his name was Simon and ran when he was told there was a warrant for his arrest.

Pohl pled guilty during an arraignment hearing in Leavenworth County District Court last week.

His sentencing is scheduled for December 20.
