Fugitive arrested by Sturgeon Bay Police

A dangerous fugitive was arrested by Sturgeon Bay police officers on Friday. The fugitive was wanted out of Missouri by local, state, and federal authorities and was considered to be possibly armed and dangerous with violent tendencies. The suspect was found at a business on the east side of Sturgeon Bay on Friday. When the officers tried to make contact with the suspect, he tried to run. The officers had to use a Taser to subdue the suspect, as he also had a knife that he attempted to use. The fugitive was also found with drugs and drug paraphernalia. No officers were hurt and the suspect got minor injuries and was medically cleared at the hospital. He was then taken to the Door County Jail. Sturgeon Bay Police Administration could not be reached at this time to comment further. We will update this story as more information becomes available.
