Delia burglary suspect in custody

Dallas Harmon (Jackson Co Sheriff's Office)

(KAIR)--The Tuesday morning arrest of a man for a Delia burglary followed a Jackson County manhunt that began Monday night as authorities searched for his whereabouts.

Taken into custody Tuesday morning, just over 13-hours after the search began, was 41-year-old Dallas Eugene Harmon. Booked into the Jackson County Jail, Harmon faces charges including two counts of aggravated assault of law enforcement officers, two counts of burglary and theft, and fleeing and eluding law enforcement. At the time of his Jackson County arrest, Harmon was wanted on a full-extradition warrant from the State of Colorado.

According to a release from Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse, his office was notified of a burglary in progress at 2830 102nd Road, south of Delia, around 8:30 Monday night by neighbors of the property.

Jackson County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived, aided by both Troopers and a helicopter of the Kansas Highway Patrol, with the search focused on a wooded area where the alleged burglar had fled. During the search, Harmon was able to return to his pickup truck parked on the property. As he fled behind the wheel, Morse says Harmon allegedly nearly struck a Deputy and a Trooper as he sped across a cornfield then ran into a heavily wooded area located northwest of the residence targeted for the burglary.

The search continued until around 4:00 Tuesday morning, as K-9 officers were used in the pursuit. Residents were alerted to lock doors due to the suspect, with Deputies continuing to patrol the location through the morning.

Around 9:45, Morse says a report was received that a person was approaching a residence near the Shawnee/Jackson County line.
Deputies and detectives located the man, now identified as Harmon, about a mile south of the Jackson County line on Capper Road.

Assisted by Rossville Police and Shawnee County Sheriff’s Deputies, Harmon was apprehended and booked into jail.
