A local man out of jail on $100,000 bond for felony charges stemming from a high-speed police chase with shots fired on April 9 found himself back behind bars again Wednesday after authorities tracked him down for arrest on a new warrant for robbery by force and fear.

A local man out of jail on $100,000 bond for felony charges stemming from a high-speed police chase with shots fired on April 9 found himself back behind bars again Wednesday after authorities tracked him down for arrest on a new warrant for robbery by force and fear.

After days of surveillance and tracking, the Pottawatomie County sheriff's warrant team and members of U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force converged on a residence near SH 9 and SH 102 to make that arrest.

Chad Pope, commander of the warrant team and member of the U.S. Marshals, said the collaborative effort led to Wednesday's arrest of Tommy Paul Martin, 30.

Martin, who has had previous run-ins with law enforcement in numerous counties, Pope said, including a police chase earlier this year, was sought on a new $100,000 arrest warrant after charges for the robbery case were filed in Pottawatomie County District Court.

Because of his criminal history, Pope said authorities wanted to quickly get Martin into custody before he could endanger anyone else. The sheriff's warrant team, along with Sheriff's Lt. Jimmy Brewer, as well as the entire U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force, were on the hunt for Martin over the past few days, Pope said, with the winter storm somewhat hampering their initial efforts.

"We'd been running surveillance for a couple days," Pope said.

With assistance from district attorney's investigators, that search led them Wednesday to the residence west of Tecumseh where Martin was arrested without incident, Pope said.

At the time of his arrest, Martin was out of jail on bond for five felony counts filed in the pursuit case, for which he's pleaded not guilty.

During that April 9 pursuit, Martin is accused of driving a pickup from the area of MacArthur Street in Shawnee out to the Shawnee Twin Lakes area, with speeds that reached 100 miles per hour.

He's charged with felony offenses including endangering others while eluding and two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, among other charges.

Narratives from that incident indicate a Shawnee police officer fired several rounds at the suspect vehicle as the driver allegedly drove toward that officer and rammed two police cars before police could end the pursuit and take the suspect into custody.

According to police and court records, Martin has prior felony convictions and numerous traffic violations on his record.

Martin's next court date on the police chase case is scheduled Dec. 17 in Pottawatomie County, while his next court date on the newest robbery charge hasn't yet been scheduled. Martin reportedly also has pending cases in both Oklahoma and Cleveland Counties for other offenses, Pope reported.

As part of Wednesday's arrest, Pope said deputies may request charges of harboring a fugitive against those who assisted Martin. Pope said there also could charges relating to threatening a state's witness.

Martin was booked into the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center Wednesday, where he remains jailed on the new $100,000 bond, as well as the previous $100,000 bond and another $5,000 bond relating to a misdemeanor domestic assault case.
