Auto theft suspect nabbed after chase
A man on foot kept law officers busy Wednesday as they tracked him with dogs and put up a perimeter to find him after he allegedly tried to take autos in Wiggins.
It was teamwork among law enforcement agencies and Wiggins area residents which finally resulted in a man being taken into custody Thursday morning. The suspect was captured after an incident that began Wednesday when he abandoned one stolen vehicle northwest of Wiggins, tried to steal two others and entered an occupied residence where he was confronted at gunpoint by one of the homeowners, said Morgan County Sheriff Jim Crone.
The suspect fled that residence and managed to elude law enforcement until early Thursday morning when he was caught after an attempt to steal yet another vehicle.
The man, who has yet to be positively identified, was captured in the Kiowa Creek bottom just west of Wiggins at approximately 6 a.m. after Wiggins Police Chief Leroy Dilka and Morgan County Sheriff's Deputy David Kallweit pursued the man on foot for about half a mile before he was tackled and taken into custody.
