Thursday, 11 October 2018

Officers with the Knox County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigations Unit, the Highway Interdiction Unit, and the Narcotics Unit took a man in custody this afternoon that was wanted on multiple outstanding warrants.  He is identified as 34 year old Zachary Miller. Officers took him and a female companion into custody at the dead end of Cannon Lane in East Knox County shortly after 1 o’clock.  Miller and the female were spotted at an Exxon gas station on Straw Plains Pike by officers.  The two fled leading officers on a short pursuit.  Officers lost sight of the car, but a few minutes later found it abandoned nearby.  A K-9 tracked the two to a neighboring field and they were taken into custody without incident. Officers found two drills and numerous hypodermic needles in the car.

Miller is wanted on multiple felonies.  It hasn’t been determined yet if the female will be charged.
