A fugitive in a stolen car was caught by a Dallas County Deputy Sheriff after a brief foot chase Friday night near the Red Carpet Inn at U.S. Highway 169 and Iowa Highway 141 in rural Bouton.
Shane Tylor Smith, 36, of Perry was taken into custody about 8:40 p.m. after trying to elude law enforcement by running from the stolen 2001 Cadillac De Ville and hiding in weeds at the rear of 14123 N Ave., according to Dallas County Deputy Sheriff Sgt. Ryan Bowers.
Bowers said Smith was arrested on charges of second-degree theft and driving while license revoked and on three outstanding Dallas County warrants. He was transported to the Dallas County Jail.
Bowers said a full report of the incident will be available Monday.
Responding to the incident alongside the Dallas County Sheriff’s office were the Iowa State Patrol, the Perry Police Department and the Woodward Police Department.
