Auxvasse man arrested after months on the run

Tyron Trower told ABC 17 News in November he knew he was wanted by police.

CALLAWAY COUNTY, Mo. - Callaway County sheriff's deputies arrested an Auxvasse man for outstanding warrants that were issued in 2012. They saw Tyron Trower, 40, driving on Highway 54 near Kingdom City and pulled him over.

In addition to the warrants - one for resisting arrest (running from police), the other for violating his parole - the deputies arrested Trower for driving while his license was revoked.

ABC 17 News found Trower while working on a story in November about people living with outstanding warrants. The two warrants against him had already been issued, and Trower told us over the phone he knew deputies were looking for him.

When we asked if he had any intention of turning himself in, Trower said he didn't. We found photographs on Facebook showing Trower living a seemingly normal life with his family.

Trower is at the Callaway County jail as of Wednesday morning. His bond for the resisting arrest warrant and driving while revoked charge totals $10,300; there is no bond for the parole violation warrant.
