Shoes? We don’t need no stinkin’ shoes!

Our detectives are so awesome they don’t even need shoes to catch crooks!

On the afternoon of Tuesday, May 19th Clay County detectives were canvassing the 8000 block of Windsor Rd. for a man wanted on felony warrants.  The suspect was spotted fleeing the area on foot, and while attempting to hide ran into a home where he was confronted by the resident.  The suspect then ran from the house and into a culvert where one plain clothed detective ran right out of his shoes to apprehend him.

Detectives arrested 45 year old Johnny A Laxson who was charged by prosecutors with felony 1st degree Burglary.  Bond was set at $100,000.00.
