Authorities question suspect after Miss. manhunt

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - The DeSoto County sheriff confirms a suspect is in custody in Marshall County after a manhunt. But authorities are still questioning the suspect to make sure he is the person that fled the vehicle.

DeSoto County deputies spent most of Tuesday searching for a suspect after he bailed out of a stolen car during the afternoon.

Byhalia police tried to get the suspect to pull over earlier in the day after they ran tags and learned the vehicle was reported stolen out of Memphis.

A spokesperson for the DeSoto County Sheriff's Department said that Byhalia Police and Marshall County Deputies assisted in the search.

Crews were on foot, in squad cars, and in a helicopter. K9 units were also involved in the search.
