A Henry County man is wanted for fleeing from a Sheriff’s Deputy who was attempting to stop his vehicle Thursday night near his home.
Larry C. Fowler, 44, of 145 Kirks Trading Post Road is wanted for a felony charge of evading arrest after he tried to flee from a traffic stop initiated by Sheriff’s Sgt. Blake Jenkins.
Also wanted in connection with the same incident is Fowler’s girlfriend, Brooke D. Miller, 30, of the same address.
According to Jenkins’ report, he was patroling shortly before 7:30 p.m. on Trading Post Road when he noticed a vehicle that he knew to be Fowler’s turning onto the road.
Since Jenkins knew Fowler was wanted by Calloway County authorities on felony warrants, he attempted to stop the vehicle by activating his emergency lights.
Instead, Fowler allegedly continued past his home and stopped the vehicle in the yard of the home next door. He then jumped out of the car and ran.
About the same time, Miller, who was also wanted on felony warrants in Calloway County, was seen by neighbors running out of the rear of the home. She is now also wanted on misdemeanor evading arrest charges by Henry County officers.
Neither had been captured as of Monday afternoon.
