VALLEY, Neb. (KXII) - One of the Sherman Police Department’s Top Ten Most Wanted fugitives was arrested Monday morning in Valley, Nebraska, by U.S. Marshals.

Grayson County Criminal District Attorney Brett Smith said Jason Levi Miller, 39, of Bonham, has outstanding warrants for four counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and two counts of indecency with a child by sexual contact.

“They are the worst of the ones that we deal with,” said Sherman Police Commander Lt. Sam Boyle. “They’re the most heinous, generally the crimes that are the most important to the community, to remove them from society so that they do not harm anyone else.”

“Miller has been on the Top Ten Most Wanted list of the Sherman Police Department for several years,” Smith said.

Don Tran, a Task Force Officer with the District Attorney’s Office, was able to track down Miller in Valley Nebraska, just outside of Omaha.

“It feels good, any of these offenses, related to sexual crimes against children, it’s real rewarding when they’re in custody,” Tran said.

Smith said Grayson County District Attorney’s Office Criminal Investigator Don Tran, who serves as a Task Force Officer with the U.S. Marshals Service, has been working tirelessly to located Miller and was successful in that endeavor last week.

Miller will be transported to the Grayson County Jail shortly, Smith said.

The Grayson County fugitive task force has located, and arrested 4 wanted fugitives within the past 12 months.
