Manhunt Leads to Arrest


Cherokee County deputies were dispatched to a rural Columbus home after a property owner discovered a burglary in progress. As law enforcement was responding to the scene, the suspect fled in a Nissan truck.


Deputies intercepted the suspect near Southwest 30th and Greenlawn, where he drove into a field prior to fleeing on foot. Law enforcement began a search, which included the use of a Cherokee County Sheriff's Office K9 Team and an aircraft, which was deployed out of Wichita. After approximately three hours, the suspect, 23-year-old Jacob Isaiah Huffman, of Riverton, was located and taken into custody. Huffman is being held in the Cherokee County Jail on allegations of Residential Burglary, Theft, Aggravated Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer, Obstruction of Justice, Possession of Methamphetamine with Intent to Distribute and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
