A fugitive who eluded law enforcement officers for two days following a chase and manhunt in the Asher area Thursday was apprehended Saturday by Asher police, Sheriff Mike Booth said.

Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Deputies and other law enforcement had been looking for Johnny S. Brown, 44, and on Friday, a $250,000 arrest warrant was issued, Pottawatomie County Undersheriff Travis Palmer said.

Brown was taken into custody Saturday morning after the Asher Police Department made contact with him walking in the area. Deputies then interviewed him before he was booked into the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center.

Formal charges have not been filed, but Brown, who was booked into jail under the name John Steven Brown, is being held on a $250,000 bond on complaints of shooting with intent to kill, carrying a firearm after former conviction or during probation and possession of a firearm while committing a felony.

Brown was sought by authorities after being caught in the act of burglarizing a home near Asher on Thursday and allegedly firing shots at citizens before leading deputies on a pursuit. Brown allegedly ditched his pickup in a wooded area off Leo Road and fled on foot. Despite a ground search by man trackers, dogs and the use of a drone from the air, he was not found Thursday.

Palmer said events began to unfold before noon Thursday at the scene of a burglary, 41174 Coker Road in Asher.

Authorities were called when a family member saw the suspect putting items into a pickup at another family member's home, then saw the driver of the pickup hook up to a trailer containing an off-road vehicle.

The family member tried to block the path of the truck, Palmer said, and the suspect allegedly told them to move or he would kill them, then fired two rounds at the ground.

As it progressed, another family member became involved by vehicle, Palmer said, with the suspect firing a shot and hitting the center of the windshield, with rounds hitting the vehicle twice. No injuries were reported.

Deputies became involved in a pursuit of the suspect vehicle, Palmer said, which ended in a rural field near Leo Road with the suspect bailing on foot.

A ground search was conducted in the area, with deputies using a drone and man trackers, with no luck finding that suspect.

Brown, who has a last known address in Oklahoma City, was believed to be in the area burglarizing homes. Palmer said deputies recovered all of the property involved in this incident, plus some additional property that didn't belong to this homeowner was found in the man's pickup.

Case reports will be turned over to the district attorney's office for consideration of formal charges. Watch for updates.
