Macon County deputies wrap up manhunt Friday afternoon

(MGN Online)

Authorities in Macon County wrapped up a manhunt early Friday afternoon after a suspect got away.

It started when Macon County Sheriff’s deputies tried to serve a Callao man with a misdemeanor probation violation around noon.

That’s when he took off on foot.

The suspect led law enforcement on a two-hour chase through a field and a wooded area.

Because it was only a misdemeanor, deputies left the scene empty-handed before 2:30 p.m.
