After investigating a felon for weeks, the authorities found and arrested a man who had many active warrants both federally and in more than one state, in addition to newly incurred charges.
It was reported that law enforcement with the Parsons, Kansas Police Department has had an open investigation for several weeks trying to track down a known felon from Columbus, Kansas.
The man, who is 43 years old, has several active felony arrest warrants. He is wanted in Labette County, Kansas, for aggravated kidnapping and domestic battery. The state of Missouri issued a warrant for a parole/probation violation, and he is wanted by the U.S. Marshal Service for possession of a weapon by a felon.
The police believed they had a complete description of the vehicle the man was driving, and the information provided them with a possible avenue that could lead them to his whereabouts.
Just before 10:30 PM on November 22, officers saw a car purported to be the one the suspect was using. The vehicle was parked in a lot, and the authorities staked it out and waited for the man to return.
According to reports, when the man walked out of the building and headed for the vehicle, a police officer and a sergeant tried to prevent him from getting in the car and leaving.
The man began to run away, and officers followed him until they were able to detain him.
Officers inspected the inside of the vehicle and reported that they located drugs and drug paraphernalia that they believed belonged to the suspect.
The suspect was taken into custody. Additionally, the DA will review the newly sought charges of felony interference with law enforcement, unlawful possession of a controlled substance, and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
