Man sought for evading officers now in custody

A man who ran from officers on Wednesday, August 20, is now in custody. According to Alexander County Sheriff’s Officers, Jesse Fox was being sought on child support warrants earlier on Wednesday, when he ran from officers on Fox Valley Court.

Officers had attempted a warrant service on Jesse Kyle Fox, who lives on Fox Valley Court (off Barrett Mountain Road), Wednesday but he ran into the wooded area behind a residence and disappeared. 

Numerous officers from the Alexander County Sheriff’s Office responded to the area around 1:00 p.m. and set up a perimeter, while the agency K-9 “Mick” and his handler, Sgt. Timothy Simms, searched the area by foot. The search was called off around 2:30 p.m. when the trail went cold.

However, late Wednesday evening, Fox turned himself in to authorities and is currently in custody at the Alexander County jail.
