Dallas Eugene O'Brien is a career criminal with a history of aggravated offenses, including kidnapping, robbery, burglary and escape.

FBI investigators indicate that O'Brien has been traveling with another fugitive, George Halstead. Halstead was profiled in the Deseret News on Sept. 11.

The FBI received information from an anonymous source shortly after the profile was published that indicated Halstead had traveled to Kentucky, then Missouri. Halstead was arrested in Kansas City, Mo., by FBI agents and Kansas City police on Oct. 3.

It is unknown if O'Brien was in Missouri at the time. He is expected to attempt to contact former associates in Salt Lake City. Agents say he should be considered dangerous and possibly armed.
