ORIGINAL STORY 4/18/22

CARTER COUNTY, Ky. (WSAZ) - Kentucky State Police are searching for a suspect they say was believed to be barricaded in a building in Olive Hill.

Trooper Shane Goodall says a special response team made entry Monday evening, and the suspect was not found inside.

They say they are checking other locations the suspect may have gone to.

Investigators say the suspect managed to exit the building without being seen before troopers had it surrounded.

“At some time before the perimeter was set, it appears he made an escape out the back way before we could get it taken care of,” Trooper Goodall said.

The suspect is not considered armed or dangerous, but they say they would like to serve active warrants on him as soon as possible.

The warrants are connected to a domestic stalking case and a violation of an EPO, according to Kentucky State Police.

Goodall says a couple troopers were searching for the man Monday morning to serve the warrants when he was spotted in a vehicle and later seen entering the building.

The suspect’s father says he owns that building, and it’s used as a garage.
