On 9/11/21 Deputies were in the Rich Hill area patrolling. A deputy observed a subject that they had identified earlier as a wanted subject. Deputies made contact with the subject on Elm Street and took the subject into custody. The subject was identified as Tommy Runions 11/29/1987 of Rich Hill. Runions had an active warrant for Stealing and Property damage.
