Deputies have probable cause to arrest Todd Mouton for Possession of a Stolen Vehicle, Reckless Endangerment-of a child, Reckless Driving and Hit and Run
The Clark County Sheriff’s Office is seeking assistance from the public to locate a suspect in a hit-and-run collision involving a 9-year-old child.
On March 14 at about 3:40 p.m., a stolen black Lexus crashed into a mailbox and tree at NE Covington Road at NE 73rd Street. Witnesses reported the vehicle to 9-1-1 as reckless just prior to the collision. After coming to rest, witnesses observed a male and what appeared to be a young child run from the vehicle. Clark County Sheriff deputies arrived and found the vehicle unoccupied.
After confirming the vehicle was stolen, deputies located a small amount of suspected methamphetamine, approximately 1/2 pound of suspected marijuana and what is believed to be stolen checks and other documents belonging to 60 different individuals, inside the vehicle.
After further investigation and witness interviews, deputies believe the driver of the vehicle was 31-year-old Todd Allen Mouton and the passenger was Mouton’s 9-year-old child. After crashing the vehicle, deputies believe Mouton directed the child to run from the vehicle with him.
CCSO Deputy Christopher Freudenberg conducted the investigation and eventually located the child and the child’s guardian the same day. The child suffered minor scratches and is in the care of family members.
Deputies have probable cause to arrest Todd Mouton for Possession of a Stolen Vehicle, Reckless Endangerment-of a child, Reckless Driving and Hit and Run. Those with information as to his whereabouts or have information that is pertinent to the investigation, are asked to contact Deputy Freudenberg at firstname.lastname@example.org, reference Clark County Sheriff’s Office case #23002066.
