According to a release from Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie, Sheriff’s Deputies went to the Effingham City Shop, shortly before 2:00 Thursday morning, after receiving a report of a burglary in progress, with the report stating “that someone had stolen a pickup from inside the fenced area and had driven through the fence to exit the property.”

The truck, identified as a 1999 Ford F250 owned by an Easton resident, was located by Atchison Police Officers near the Shannon Industrial Park, located on U.S. Highway 73, with the vehicle stopped by Police.

Although the driver, now identified as Wright, pulled over near Osage Road, he ran from the vehicle, headed south on foot, leading to a search utilizing the Sheriff’s K-9 Unit.

Despite the initial search proving unsuccessful, it was around 6:00 Thursday morning that the suspect was located at a convenience store at 1173 U.S. Highway 59, where he was taken into custody.

Following his arrest, Wright was booked into the Atchison County Jail.
