Three men branded as "badly wanted" have been added to the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.
John Edward Stevens, a convicted bank robber wanted for his alleged involvement in 22 holdups throughout the United States.
Jack Darrell Farmer, a convicted drug dealer wanted for alleged racketeering activities which include two murders, drug trafficking and extortion.
Roger Lee Jones, wanted for three counts of child molestation with three different children.
Stevens, 35, is believed to be skilled in creating fictitious identities, and is known to gloat that he is smarter than anyone in law enforcement.
When committing a crime, Stevens sometimes wears a mask, pulls a handgun, and announces a holdup. He becomes loud and abusive, sometimes threatens to shoot bank personnel and vaults over the counter to empty the cash drawers himself.
Stevens has an olive complexion, is 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs about 200 pounds.
Farmer, 35, is 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighs 200 pounds and has brown hair, blue eyes and a medium complexion. He is believed to be the ringleader of a Chicago, Ill. organization known as the "Little Mafia."
While awaiting trial he was released to his attorney's custody on day visits to prepare for the trial. On one visit he tied and gagged his lawyer and escaped.
Jones, 6 feet 1 inch tall, weighs 180 pounds. He has brown hair, hazel eyes and a fair complexion.
Jones was arrested and charged with performing and videotaping sexual acts with three children. After posting bond, he failed to appear for his trial in November 1986.
He allegedly endears himself to neighborhood children, then lures them into increasingly higher levels of sexual contact.
All three fugitives have been known to posses firearms and should be considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information concerning their whereabouts is asked to contact the FBI in Oklahoma City at 842-7471. BIOG: NAME:Archive ID: 348693
