AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) – The Randall County SWAT team has caught the Oklahoma man who stole a Guymon police vehicle and gun in a home on Ottawa Trail.
On June 11, the United States Marshals Service contacted the Randall County Sheriff’s Office requesting assistance from the Randall County SWAT Team.
Deputy Marshals had chased 27-year-old Rondale Scott Turner to a home located at 906 Ottawa Trail in Randall County where Turner barricaded himself inside.
Turner was wanted for a number of warrants including escape from arrest, eluding a police officer, possession of a stolen Vehicle, grand larceny, possession of a firearm after a former felony conviction, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, methamphetamine, and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
According to the RCSO, Turner has reportedly stolen eight vehicles, including one police vehicle with a K9 and AR-15 inside in Guymon, Oklahoma on May 27. He has been involved in five different vehicle pursuits since May 29.
The Randall County SWAT team was unable to make contact with Turner and deployed tear gas into the home, but Turner did not surrender or make contact with SWAT Team operators.
The SWAT team then used a robot in an attempt to locate Turner, but were unable to find him in the residence.
Deputies believed that Turner might be in the walls of the residence, but did not locate him once entering the home.
As officers were preparing to leave, a US Marshals Service deputy heard a noise, and Turner was finally located inside the walls of the home.
Turner was taken out of the wall and arrested. Officials say he was armed with a handgun when he was taken into custody.
Deputies also recovered three stolen guns and a vehicle that Turner had stolen earlier.
Turner has been booked into the Randall County Jail.
