When deputies checked the names of the occupants with the Lincoln County Communications Center they learned that Crutchfield had multiple felony warrants. Crutchfield was taken into custody, handcuffed and placed in the back of a patrol car. After securing the prisoner the deputy then walked over to a nearby building and camper where another suspect may be hiding but did not locate anyone. On his way back the officer stopped to speak to his Sergeant before returning to his vehicle.
When the deputy got back to his patrol car the rear window was down and the prisoner gone. Deputies searched the surrounding area but could not locate the suspect. The Denver Fire Department responded to assist in the search along with a K-9 unit from the Lincolnton Police Department. The K-9 tracked the suspect to a location in the 4500 block of Highway 16 Business. Deputies searched an occupied building at that location but could not find the suspect.
The suspect has outstanding felony warrants for breaking and entering a building, larceny after breaking and entering and possession of stolen goods. He is also charged with misdemeanor counts of larceny of handcuffs, possession of stolen goods and resist, delay and obstruct a public officer.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Clarence Jackson Crutchfield, 50, of Denver, NC is asked to contact the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at 704-732-9050 or the Lincoln County Communications Center at 704-735-8202.
