Suspect in Custody After Short Manhunt with Strange Ending


Everest Metro police say a man wanted on several felony warrants is in custody after a short manhunt with a strange ending in Weston Thursday evening.

At all started at about 7:30 when Kronenwetter police pulled the suspect over at the corner of Shorey and Camp Philips Rd.

But he ran off.

Police say Aron, Everest Metro PD's new K9 officer went to work searching for him and zeroed in on a house on Birch St, only about 500 feet from where the traffic stop was made.

Police discovered the suspect had been invited to the house when the man who lives there spotted him on his deck.

The two were actually drinking water together.

The suspect, 24-year old Matthew Dupleasis, was taken into custody without further incident.
