Police catch out-of-state fugitive | Crime
A man accused of stealing a car near St. Louis and driving to Searcy to kill a woman was unsuccessful in his quest.
On Tuesday police in Festus, MO, notified the Searcy Police Department that Seth Thompson, 18, was on his way to the White County town “looking for a female that he had intentions of killing,” according to Chief Jeremy Clark.
Thompson, who was said to be armed and dangerous, reportedly was driving a vehicle he had carjacked in Festus.
Searcy police located the car and Thompson. He was arrested without incident, Chief Clark said.
Clark is being held at the White County Detention Center on $100,000 bond awaiting extradition to Missouri.
