Prescott AZ (July 4, 2019) – Today Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office is requesting your help in locating fugitive Michael William Burch. Burch is wanted on a felony charge of Impersonation.

The warrant is extraditable statewide, and has a bond amount of $5000.00.
Burch is described as a white male, 52 years of age, 6 feet tall, 185 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. His last known address is on Mandalay Lane in Phoenix.
