MANHUNT CONTINUES FOR FUGITIVE


A manhunt continues in Pulaski County for a fugitive that has lead law enforcement officials on a county wide search, which began early Thursday evening and continued throughout the midnight hours. The suspect, 38 year old Chad Lange, is wanted for numerous felony charges, including Auto Theft and Burglary.

Law enforcement officials initially began searching for suspect Lange after he was named as a perpetrator in numerous car thefts and burglaries in the Dixon area over the past week. The Dixon Police Department, the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department and other law enforcement agencies have been actively seeking fugitive Lange since warrants were issued for his arrest.

Thursday evening the search escalated when the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department discovered Lange hiding out in the 15,000 Block of Cave Road, just south of Dixon. A car chase ensured, in which suspect Lange was driving a stolen pickup truck. During the pursuit, Lange demonstrating a willful disregard for life and property, and was operating his vehicle in an extremely dangerous manner. Lange was able to elude the sheriff after crashing through a farm gate and driving his 4-wheel drive vehicle up a dilapidated logging trail.

Citizen sightings, along with information developed by authorities, lead law enforcement officials to the Crocker area. The search for Lange was discontinued in the early morning hours after all leads had diminished. Sheriff Ron Long advised this was a multi-agency endeavor, in which every law enforcement agency in Pulaski County assisted in, including Missouri State Highway Patrol troopers and their helicopter.

The stolen vehicle Chad Lange was driving at the time of Thursday evening’s pursuit was later discovered by officers in Lebanon. As of this time, fugitive Lange is still at large.

Sheriff Long is asking the communities assistance in locating Chad Lange. Fugitive Lange has an extensive criminal history, and should be considered armed and dangerous. Therefore, do not attempt contact with this individual, if sighted. If you have any information regarding the location of Chad Lange, please contact the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department at 573-774-6196 (also 911), or by calling your local law enforcement agency.

Should have never been out of jail. That's where he has been since he was young. Hopefully he doesn't hurt anyone while on this spree.

Don't forget that due to the rising cost of ammo, I quit shooting warning shots.
