Patrick McGlennen, age 21, Worthville escaped from a Carroll County deputy sheriff on Monday, May 2 after officers attempted to execute a felony warrant on him. He was apprehended early on Wednesday, May 4.

McGlennen was sought for the alleged theft of batteries from trucks and campers parked on Hunter’s Heights Road and from farm equipment from two farms on state Hwy. 227. Carroll County Sheriff Jamie Kinman signed a criminal complaint against McGlennen for theft by unlawful taking over $500 and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

He was lodged in the Carroll County Detention Center.

McGlennen is charged in Carroll County with theft by unlawful taking over $500, a Class D felony punishable by one to five years in prison, and fleeing and evading police, a Class A misdemeanor. He is also being charged in Owen County with escape, a Class D felony, and fleeing and evading police, a Class A misdemeanor, because the initial attempt to serve the warrant on him occurred in Owen County, according to Kinman.

Sheriff Kinman said two more people will be charged in the battery thefts, but their names are not being released at this time.

He encouraged anyone who owns large trucks or equipment to check them regularly to make sure nothing is missing or, better yet, put the trucks inside barns or garages if possible. Kinman also noted that people are stealing scrap metal and copper wiring so individuals should be aware of leaving those items unattended as well.
