State Police were looking for Calhoun resident Gary Lee Nicholson last week, reportedly to serve him with a warrant.|
Nicholson apparently fled into the woods near Calhoun County Park, eluding police.
Sgt. Doug Starcher called for assistance from other officers, including Sgt. Tom Yanero. Police dogs were placed into action to find Nicholson, who is currently facing charges related to stolen property.
They were unable to locate him.
In 2003 Nicholson eluded police, running into the woods in the Norman Ridge section. He was wanted for a probation or parole violation after a drug test showed positive and he had an encounter with his court officer.
During that fleeing incident, Nicholson received some injuries in the woods after a police dog was brought in to locate him. He later advised Sheriff Allen Parsons he would surrender, but he failed to show up.
After several days, Nicholson turned himself over to authorities.
