On the night of January 20, deputies were called to a home in the western portion of the county and told that there were people at the home that should not be there and that they were attempting to burglarize the home.
When Deputies arrived they were able to locate three suspects. Two of the suspects were near the home and immediately detained. The third suspect was out by a truck and trailer.
While the Deputy was interviewing the third suspect, he kept trying to get back into the truck and was attempted to reach for something in the truck. He eventually fled on foot was able to evade arrest.
Inside the truck where the suspect was reaching, deputies located a loaded .45 caliber pistol that came back stolen out of Marshall County.
The other two suspects were arrested for warrants out of other counties, as well as felony charges for burglary of the home.
The investigation eventually led deputies to a home in Johnston County where there was supposed to be more stolen property. A search warrant was requested and granted through the District Court, and deputies from Love County and Johnston County executed the search warrant for the home early the next morning.
Deputies were able to locate several stolen guns from the home in Love County, as well as a stolen truck, methamphetamine, and several other stolen electronics, crossbows, and personal items.
Four arrests were made in two counties, and more arrests are expected upon the conclusion of this investigation.
Great work to all deputies from Love and Johnston counties that assisted thus far on the case.
A felony arrested warrant is anticipated to be issued for the suspect that fled and any help in locating this suspect would be helpful. The suspect’s name is Ryan Kasey Wyatt. He has warrants out of multiple counties in Oklahoma and Texas. Please contact local law enforcement if you see him or know of his where abouts. -Sheriff Cumberledge
