Quinlan Hogan, who authorities had called a "dangerous" suspect was arrested Monday night in Poteau after an all day manhunt involving the U.S. Marshals Task Force. The Sequoyah County Sheriff's Dept. assisted with the arrest.
According to Eric Helms, Director of Oklahoma Dist. 27 Drug and Violent Crime Task Force, Quinlan was arrested at the KP's Quick Mart which is across the street from the Leflore County Courthouse.
Authorities have been searching for Hogan since Jan. 10 when he led police on a chase that began in Sequoyah County and crossed the Arkansas River into both Leflore and Haskell County. During the chase Hogan ran through two roadblocks, reached speeds in excess of 100 mph and eventually abandoned his vehicle and fled on foot. He was originally wanted on a misdemeanor warrant for threatening acts of violence and also has a previous criminal history of illegal drugs, possession of firearms, and a suspended license.
Hogan eluded authorities for 18 days before his arrest in Poteau.
Hogan was booked into the Sequoyah County Dentention Center and is charged with petty larceny, eluding a police officer, possession of stolen property, unauthorized use of a vehicle, failure to appear on a domestic assault and battery in the presence of a minor, failure to appear on threatening to perform an act of violence and failure to appear on possession of a firearm during commission of a felony
