Knox County Sheriff's Office searching for man on the run

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The Knox County Sheriff's Department is looking for a man they say ran from deputies.

Sunday, a deputy tried pulling over Jake Patrick, 30, for a traffic stop when he sped off.

Patrick has a warrant out for his arrest for theft charges.

The deputy chased Patrick to his home in Farragut.

There, deputies say Patrick ran inside, and ran out the back door.

The department used their aviation and K-9 units to search for him near Concord Woods but were unsuccessful.

If you know where he may be, call KCSO at 865-215-2243.
