The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office is working to locate a stolen vehicle and the man who took it, after an incident when shots were fired at the truck's owner.
Just before 8:00 a.m. yesterday, deputies responded to a call northwest of Columbus for a report of a stolen farm truck.
The owner of the stolen truck found it and the suspect when the suspect stopped to siphon gas out of the stolen truck and into a van. The van was stolen out of Oklahoma City.
The owner of the truck and other family members, confronted the suspect, 61-year-old Charles Amos. Amos fired a shot in the direction of the family before fleeing in the stolen truck. The truck is a white 2015 Chevy 4-door with tinted windows.
Amos was last seen in Coffeyville around 2:15 p.m. yesterday afternoon, traveling westbound on Highway 166.
If you see Amos or the stolen truck, please contact local law enforcement.
