A 22-year-old wanted felon ran from an officer Wednesday and ditched his backpack, which contained two pistols, before he was eventually caught nearby, according to a police report.

At about 1:05 p.m., an officer was patrolling near a business in the 200 block of East Oak Street. The business owner said they’d previously had issues with people loitering and granted police enforcement authorization for the property, requesting police patrol this area closely.
