LENOIR CITY, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The Loudon County Sheriff's Office said a man wanted for accessory to homicide was captured following a search Tuesday night.

Investigators were looking for and eventually found Edward N. Keyt. Loudon County investigators told Local 8 News Keyt is charged with accessory to homicide and Monroe County had a warrant out for his arrest.

The pursuit started in Monroe County then crossed into Loudon County which is why both agencies were involved in the search.

According to a LCSO Facebook post, deputies searched the area of Highway 72 and Vonore Road.

Deputies found Keyt's car and chased him down on foot.

Investigators said he was wanted on multiple felony warrants.

Keyt has been incarcerated in the Loudon County jail four times over the years on drug, theft and trespassing related charges.
