Eldon Resident Apprehended after Manhunt
A 37-year old man from Eldon, MO was recently arrested in Miller County after an all day manhunt.
A press release from the Miller County Sheriff's Department indicates that on September 18, deputies were dispatched to a domestic disturbance in the area of Route M and Adams Road.
The female victim was reporting she had been physically assaulted and was being followed down the highway by the suspect in a black GMC pickup. Upon arrival to the area, deputies located the suspect driving the pickup.
The male suspect reportedly exited the vehicle and fled on foot. Deputies pursued the suspect on foot and lost sight of him in the forest area. The suspect was identified as 37-year old Gabriel Harris, of Eldon.
According to the press release, Harris had several felony warrants for his arrest out of Miller and Camden counties. A police K-9 and air support was requested. The sheriff's department say a citizen later located Harris in the area of Adams and Bax Roads.
Deputies and Highway Patrol troopers responded to the area and began a search for Harris, eventually locating him hiding in hay barn.
With the assistance of local farmers and their equipment, over half of the the round bales were removed and Harris was taken into custody without incident at approximately 11:30 that night. Harris is being held on a no-bond warrant and a $100,000 warrant.
Additional felony charges are expected to be filed in the near future.
