Fugitive Behind Bars

The search ended this week for a Chireno man. Nacogdoches County deputies have been looking for John Wayne McCroskey since January. That's when he skipped a court date for kidnapping an 81 year old man and stuffing him in a car trunk. Now he's suspected in a similar crime. Two weeks ago a Sacul resident was assaulted, kidnapped and had his car stolen. Thanks to tips, authorities were hot on McCroskey's tracks. He was arrested Friday in Jasper County. Now he sits in the Nacogdoches County Jail. The consequences...a $100,000 bond on bail jumping and no bond on the aggravated robbery and kidnapping charges
