In the wake of several recent burglaries in the area, members of the Cave Hollow Bay Homeowners Association Neighborhood Watch took it upon themselves to join the search for a local burglary suspect.
Law enforcement officials had suspected Andy Hornback (30) to have been part of the break-ins. He is a Cave Hollow Bay man who has three outstanding warrants and is suspected to be armed and dangerous. Officials had recently urged local citizens to report any suspicious activity or any sightings of the wanted man.
On Saturday night, Julne 18, the neighborhood watch spotted Hornback and two other men on a neighborhood road, challenged them, and detained one of the three men, Cody Haycraft, until law enforcement, who was in the neighborhood, arrived to take Haycraft into custody on an outstanding felony arrest warrant.
It was reported that Hornback and the other man was able to get away before law enforcement arrived.
"Hornback has been known to run in the past and has a history of burglary in and around the lake area," said Sheriff Shane Doyle. "He is considered armed and dangerous."
Doyle urges anyone who routinely walks or rides around the lake area to be aware at all times.
"We strongly encourage those who have concealed weapons permits to carry their firearms if proficient with them," Doyle added.
