Back on July 10th, the Pocahontas County Sheriff's office received a report of a suspicious man who was operating an ATV in Palmer.

The man reported he was from Wichita, Kansas. A check was done on his ID information, but it was unconfirmed.
An investigation on the ATV showed it was from Sedgwick, Kansas, and was reported as stolen on July 7th. The man was arrested and charged with Theft Possession of Stolen Property, a class D felony. He refused to provide any other information regarding his identity.
On July 11th, the man's fingerprints were submitted to the FBI. The man was recently positively identified as 40-year-old Kevin Paul Ryan of Wichita.
