BATESVILLE, MS -
(WMC-TV) - Police are on the hunt for two men who reportedly hog-tied a Tallahatchie County man, robbed him, then stole his truck on Christmas Day.
On Thursday night, Sardis police officers found the truck. As they tried to run the license plate number, the suspects started shooting. Later in Batesville, Miss., the truck was spotted again.
After shooting up the Batesville officer's squad car, the suspects ditched the stolen truck and set it on fire.
Law enforcement officers received a call Friday morning from a man who said he was forced to drop two men off at the Arby's in Horn Lake, Miss. Investigators believe that incident is connected with aforementioned crime spree.
William Selby was relaxing in his Oakland, Miss., home when the two suspects broke in, tied him up, and stole his truck. They used his own gun against him during the robbery.
"That was my Christmas present, I guess," said Selby. "They tied me up with duct tape."
Tallahatchie County Sheriff William Brewer Jr. says 33-year-old Michael Manis and Cody Eggmeyer broke into Selby's home around 3 p.m. Wednesday.
"It was a pretty bad deal to start off with but when they started shooting at the police we asked everybody to help," said Sheriff Brewer.
Law enforcement officers from DeSoto County, Southaven, and Horn Lake have been searching for the two suspects.
Meanwhile, Selby is just happy nobody has been hurt.
"I'm glad I'm okay and they're out of Tallahatchie County," he said.
Sheriff Brewer says Manis has family in Missouri and he could be headed that way.
Woman sees stolen truck burn
Emily Gaines was on her front porch early Friday morning when she heard some commotion down the street.
"I heard a bunch of dogs, I heard weird noises, a couple of gun shots," she said.
Instinct told her to run inside, lock her doors, and wait.
"Looked out my bedroom window and saw the cops going down, the ambulance, fire trucks, and just saw them rushing there.," said Gaines.
They were responding to a truck that had been set on fire in a field nearby.
"I didn't know what was going on, but I knew it was bad because I saw their search lights going on," she explained.
She found out later that the burning truck belonged to Selby.
"I was told that they went through my backyard," said Gaines. "When they went and got somebody to drive them to Horn Lake."
That is when other law enforcement agencies got involved, canvassing the Arby's parking lot where they were last seen in Horn Lake, and searching a hotel.
"It'd just be a guess but it's my guess that if they didn't leave here on foot, they got somebody, that they either kidnapped somebody or stole a vehicle and left," suggested Sheriff Brewer.
Gaines is just happy she no one was hurt and that the suspects left her otherwise quiet neighborhood.
If you happen to see these two men, do not approach them. Call 911 right away.
