Location of the Manhunt 1/4 South of Memorial on Fishmarket Road
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.
