Man arrested in manhunt follow-up
CALLAWAY COUNTY - The Callaway County Sheriff's Office said a man who fled deputies and led them on a three-hour-long manhunt was taking into custody without incident Thursday.
Deputies said Travis Cooke, 30, of Fulton, eluded them on foot March 3, leaving a residence in the 3000 block of County Road 121, which is southeast of Kingdom City. In a news release, the sheriff's office said Missouri State Highway Patrol troopers and aircraft, as well as the Missouri Department of Conservation, assisted in the manhunt.
While conducting a follow-up Thursday, deputies said they found Cooke hiding in the residence. Deputies wanted Cooke for a Feb. 22 felony domestic assault incident near Fulton. Deputies also wanted Cooke on a felony warrant for narcotics from Warren County, the news release said.
During the follow-up, deputies also took into custody Lorraine Atkins, 22, of Jefferson City. The sheriff's office accused her of felony hindering prosecution.
Cooke and Atkins were both transported to the Callaway County Jail. Cooke was being held on no bond, pending a judge bond setting for the charges, including a felony charge for resisting arrest. Atkins was being held for $1,500 bond on a felony charge of hindering prosecution.
