The Greene County Sheriff’s Office wants your help finding a refugee. Detectives are looking for Johnny Joe Coffer. He is charged with several counts of theft and burglary. The 44-year-old is also charged with fraudulent use of a credit / debit device and possession of drugs. Deputies say Coffer was arrested in early November. Following his release, investigators say Coffer disconnected his GPS tracking device and has been on the run.

The initial charges against Coffer followed a crime on 9 September. A victim reported a car burglary near the Rutledge Wilson Greenway Trail. Her window had been smashed and someone had stolen her purse. The victim later discovered that a stolen credit card had been used to buy more than $ 1,100 in items from Lowe’s store on Norton Road in Springfield. Surveillance video from the store shows a man matching Coffer’s description using the victim’s stolen credit card.

Johnnie Coffer has several tattoos. He has a date and three scratch marks on the left side of his neck. Deputy Rippee says Coffer calls these “animal marks.” He has the name “NIKKI” on the right side of his neck in green, red and yellow ink. Coffer’s chest is also tattooed and he has full sleeves on both arms.

Deputy Paige Rippee says his last known address is in the western part of Greene County off the Chestnut Expressway. Coffer has also been spotted in Ozark, Christian County. If you see Johnnie Coffer, do not confront him. Call 911. Deputies say he should be considered armed and dangerous. If you have any information, call the Greene County Tip Line at 417-829-6230.
