CHADRON, Neb. • Local and state officers are searching a wooded area in far northwest Nebraska for a man wanted on Utah warrants.
Dawes County Sheriff Karl Dailey says the hunt began about 5:30 p.m. Monday for Justin Pierce and continued overnight.
Dailey says deputies were trying to serve arrest warrants on Pierce at his residence near Crawford when Pierce fled in in a pickup. Dailey says Pierce soon left the truck and ran into nearby woods. Officers cordoned off about 4 square miles where he was believed to be hiding.
