In a Facebook post, the Decorah Police Department asks for assistance in tracking down 26-year-old Brandon Joseph Kimber of Cresco for parole and probation violations in Winneshiek County. Kimber has been known to be in the Decorah and Postville area.

The Howard County Sheriff’s Office has since posted that they are also on the lookout for Kimber on a charge of second-degree theft.

Court records show Kimber has a lengthy list of criminal convictions, including OWI, assault, second- and third-degree theft, third-degree burglary, drug possession and twice for operating a vehicle without owner’s consent in Winneshiek County. 

Kimber has also been convicted twice on second-degree burglary charges in Allamakee County, plus operating a vehicle without owner’s consent and two counts of third-degree motor vehicle burglary in Howard County.

All convictions have come between 2018 and 2023.

If you or anyone you know is aware of the location of Kimber, please contact the Decorah Police Department at 563-382-3667 or Howard County Sheriff’s Office at 563-547-3535. All tips can be anonymous.
