Most “Manhunt Monday” subjects are wanted criminals who have already committed crimes within Metro’s jurisdiction. This weeks subject is a known criminal from outside of Nevada, who has, again, returned to our area.
Rick Ballard is a wanted person, and Metro wants to return him to California on those warrants before he has the opportunity to offend within our community.
Ballard is a white male adult, 49 years of age, standing 5'7" tall and weighing approximately 272 lbs. with brown hair and green eyes.
He sometimes uses the names of:
- Richard Oliver Ballard,
- Rick Albert Ballar,
- Rickey Allen Ballare,
- Rickey Michael Deancelo,
- Rickey Deancelo, and
- Richard Allen Rowe.
Metro Police say Ballard is a convicted sex offender from the State of California who is currently wanted for parole violation. In 2008 he was arrested in Las Vegas as a “Fugitive from Justice” on the same charge, and Metro has information he has once again returned to the Southern Nevada area.
In 2008 Ballard resided in the 3700 block of Swenson Street, but he could be anywhere.
If anyone has any information concerning the whereabouts of Rick Ballard you are urged to immediately contact the L.V.M.P.D. Fugitive Detail at 828-3578 or Crime Stoppers at 385-5555.
