Man leads officers on foot chase in Marmet
MARMET, W.Va. (WCHS/WVAH) —
A burglary suspect eluded an intense manhunt in eastern Kanawha County Tuesday morning.
Deputies and Charleston police flooded a 10-block area in Marmet after a man out-ran an officer following a foot chase near the Kanawha River. Deputies say the officer had spotted the suspect, described as a bald white man in a black sleeveless T-shirt, trying to get into an outbuilding in the eastern end of town. Two K-9's tried to track the man who apparently took advantage of several fences in the area to get away.
