Seventh Dodge City student arrested for threats

DODGE CITY — A seventh Dodge City student has been arrested for making threats to a school, this time the threat was toward the Dodge City Middle School.

According to Dodge City Police Chief Drew Francis, about 4:10 p.m. Oct. 10, the DCPD was notified of a possible bomb threat to DCMS.

“Officers learned that a 13-year-old female middle school student received a phone call from a blocked number while present in a classroom at the end of the school day,” Francis said. “The male caller started using profanity, and the student hung up the phone. The blocked caller immediately called back, and the female student put the phone on speaker for the teacher to listen.

“During that second call, the unknown male caller stated that he was going to blow up the school.”

Later in the evening, the 15-year-old male caller was located at his Dodge City residence and arrested without incident, officials said.


Murder suspect concernED about having car towed

LEAVENWORTH — A man facing a murder charge in Leavenworth County reportedly told authorities he fled from a state trooper because he was worried his vehicle would be towed for having an expired tag.

That is according to a probable cause affidavit that was prepared in the case of Anthony J. Dorsey.

Dorsey, 29, is facing a first-degree murder charge in connection to a Sept. 30 crash on Interstate 70 in southern Leavenworth County. The crash occurred while Dorsey allegedly was fleeing from authorities.

Another driver, Nathan Pena of Brookfield, Illinois, was killed in the crash.

Dorsey previously had been released on parole from the Kansas Department of Corrections. But he was considered a parole absconder at the time of the crash.
