KIOWA, Colo. (AP) -- A nationwide warrant has been issued for a former Colorado sheriff's deputy wanted for poaching deer near Elbert.
Former Elbert County deputy Steve Few was arrested December 20 in Georgia on multiple felonies following a citizen's report of illegally-harvested deer.
Authorities say Few bonded out of custody in Georgia but has not returned to Colorado for a court appearance.
Charges against him include two counts of destruction of wildlife, trespassing, shooting from a road, hunting with a light and two counts of attempting to influence a public servant.
Few had been with the sheriff's office for about 2-1/2 months at the time of the alleged incident.
District Attorney spokeswoman Vikki Migoya with Colorado's 18th Judicial District says further details have not been released. It's unclear if Few has an attorney.
