Doug Alexius was wanted on multiple felony warrants out of Missouri and a federal warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution. Deputies caught up with Alexius Tuesday morning at a home near 32nd and Crane in Joplin after receiving at tip.
“We’ve chased him numerous times, he’s dangerous, endangered so many people’s lives,” said Chief Deputy Chris Jennings.
Law enforcement surrounded the home and obtained an arrest warrant before firing gas canisters into the house.
