Wanette burglary solved, property returned

An overnight burglary at Wanette Tractor and Supply was solved within hours Wednesday after two suspects were arrested and the stolen property was recovered. Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Capt. Travis Palmer said the burglary was discovered upon opening the store Wednesday morning. The burglars pried open a door and took a laptop computer used by the business, Palmer said.  Deputy Scott Hawkins worked the case. Using evidence collected at the scene, Hawkins was able to identify two suspects and had both of them in custody by that afternoon, Palmer said. The computer also was recovered and returned to the business.  Arrested on complaints of burglary, second degree, were Jared Wilson, 19, and Brad Baxter, 20, Palmer said. Both remained jailed at the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center Friday, each held on $10,000 bond. Wilson also was held on a complaint of possession of stolen property, according to jail records. Palmer said Hawkins did a good job working the case, which will be forwarded to the district attorney’s office for consideration of any formal charges.

Deputies arrest five burglary suspects

Pottawatomie County sheriff’s deputies arrested five suspects Thursday shortly after a residential burglary.  Sheriff Mike Booth said Deputy Chad Pope made a traffic stop of an alleged suspect vehicle, which led to recovery of stolen property and the arrests.  Pope said a rural residential break-in had been reported and the suspect vehicle, a white Dodge pickup, left the area. As Deputy Ken VanDuser worked the initial burglary scene, Pope, also responding, noticed the possible suspect vehicle and followed it from the area of U.S. 177 and Hardesty Road into Shawnee.  With information matching the suspect vehicle, including partial tag numbers, Pope said he made a traffic stop at Kickapoo and Ridgewood streets.  The truck, which turned out to be stolen, had items in the bed of the pickup that matched those taken from the burglary, Pope said, including a computer.  Five persons in the truck — two males and three females —were arrested at the scene, Pope said.  As he continued to work the case Thursday evening, the suspects were being booked into the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center on complaints of burglary and possession of stolen property.  Watch for further updates.

Manhunt suspect charged

A Tecumseh man arrested at the end of a manhunt May 6 after allegedly surrendering to police wearing his own handcuffs now faces nine charges, seven of them felonies.
Charles Bryan Wilson, 33, is charged in Pottawatomie County District Court with burglary in the first degree, two counts of feloniously pointing a firearm, two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, kidnapping, manufacture of controlled dangerous substance and possession of a firearm after a former conviction.
He also faces misdemeanor charges of assault and battery and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
Multiple law enforcement agencies worked the manhunt east of Tecumseh following a series of events involving Wilson and his reported ex-wife, authorities said.
Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Capt. Travis Palmer said it all began with word that Wilson was en route from the Pink area to Shawnee and was allegedly making threats to kill his ex-wife. That woman left her home and went to stay with friends at a residence near SH 9 and South Rock Creek Road, Palmer said.
Palmer said Wilson showed up at that home overnight with a shotgun and allegedly kicked in the front door of that home, then dragged his ex-wife out to his truck. Before they could leave, the ex-wife was able to jump out of the pickup. As law enforcement became involved in searching that area for Wilson overnight, Palmer said authorities went to his home and also found what appeared to be a methamphetamine lab there.
As everything began to unfold by 4 a.m., deputies traced a call that Wilson allegedly made after breaking into Rath’s Auto Salvage east of Tecumseh, where a massive manhunt originated about 7 a.m. A perimeter was set up as officers and deputies from multiple agencies scoured the salvage yard and nearby woods, using several police dogs.
When deputies found Wilson just before noon that day, he apparently had his own set of handcuffs with him, Palmer said, and surrendered to his knees with his wrists cuffed in front of him.
As far as the charges, Wilson is accused of kicking in the front door of the home on May 6. He’s also accused of kidnapping his ex-wife from that same home with intent to cause her to be confined against her will. For the two counts of feloniously pointing a firearm, he is accused of pointing a shotgun at a man there and at his ex-wife.
He’s also accused of manufacturing methamphetamine at his home and for being a felon is possession of a pistol.
Wilson remained jailed on $100,000 bond Wednesday night at the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center. His next court date is set for June 4.
If convicted of the charges, punishment ranges vary from one to 20 years in prison for each of the nine counts filed, and up to a $50,000 fine for manufacturing methamphetamine.
