WCSO: ‘Armed and dangerous’ suspect spotted Wednesday night
LYNNVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The Warrick County Sheriff’s Office says the ‘armed and dangerous’ suspect they’ve been searching for since Tuesday was spotted in Lynnville again.
Authorities say Michael White, the suspect in this investigation, was spotted in the area of Clutter Road Wednesday night.
According to a lieutenant, White was spotted by a deputy around 7 p.m.
Officials say the deputy got out to confront him, and White fired a shot and fled back into the woods.
The sheriff’s office says they don’t think it was necessary at the deputy, but a shot was still fired.
The lieutenant says a perimeter is set up so White can’t get back into town.
The Warrick County Sheriff’s Office was actively in the Clutter Road area looking for White Wednesday.
Our crews also reported seeing a helicopter hovering around the area near the Warrick County-Pike County line. That’s the location authorities say White led them on a brief pursuit down.
This all started on Tuesday after authorities say they were trying to serve a warrant to Michael White.
We’re told White has active warrants out of Warrick County for dealing in methamphetamine.
During that attempt, officials say White fired multiple shots in their direction and sped away. The deputies were not hit in that interaction.
Alerts were sent to residents in the area who have signed up for their “CodeRED system”.
We’re told authorities found White’s abandoned car after he led them down the area of Clutter Road and Log Creek road.
Our crews that were in the area Wednesday night and say authorities started to leave around 1 a.m.
Here is our coverage Wednesday before deputies say White was spotted again:
