UPDATE: The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said they have arrested a man who they deemed as “armed and dangerous,” Facebook posts from the Douglas County Sheriff say. A four-wheeler the man allegedly stole was also recovered.
The man allegedly stole a car with a child inside it in West Plains on Saturday. The man stopped long enough for the child to escape out of the back door of the car. The man was last seen near Vanzant on Sunday before he was apprehended by authorities.
Now that the subject has been arrested, Ozarks First has redacted the name of the man until formal charges are filed.
