Millbrook manhunt suspect captured

Posted by: John Shryock - bio | email

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A suspect in Monday's Millbrook manhunt is now in custody. Millbrook police say Sylvester Nolen, Jr. was arrested at a home in Prattville after someone called in an anonymous tip.

The incident started with a burglary on Tybee Ct. Monday morning. When authorities arrived on the scene the burglars had already fled. Witnesses were able to give officers a "very good" description of the three suspects and their vehicle.

An hour later Millbrook officers stopped the suspect car on Deatsville Highway and County Road 40. That's when one suspect, believed armed, bolted from the car into the woods.

Two other suspects, an unidentified male and female, were taken into custody and a manhunt started for the third person.  

Millbrook police, the Alabama Dept. of Public Safety, K-9 units and other agencies converged on the area. Even a state trooper helicopter was flown in, but unfortunately the dogs lost the suspect's scent and the hunt was eventually called off.

Fast forward 24 hours and an anonymous tip leads Millbrook and Prattville police, as well as the Central Alabama Drug Task Force, to a house on Murphy Lane in Prattville.

Police found themselves in a short standoff, but Nolen was taken into custody without injury.

He's now being held on felony charges of Burglary 3rd and Theft of Property 2nd.

He's being held at the Elmore County Jail on a $30,000 bond. A probation hold is also in effect, which has no bond.
