A burglary, a high speed chase, and a man on the loose in the Lake area. Sheriff’s deputies got to a burglary in progress in the Timberlake Village Estates area of Rocky Mount Wednesday. The two suspects got in a minivan and drove off, starting a chase that went from the Morgan County town to neighboring Miller County, through Eldon and on to Highway 54.
The passenger in the van jumped out during the chase, and was taken into custody. The driver stopped on Atchison Road in Miller County, and escaped into a wooded area nearby.
The search for the fugitive continues. Morgan County authorities haven’t given us his name, or the name of the person in custody. No word yet on what, if anything, the two suspects took from the home, because authorities hadn’t contacted the owners yet.
