Manhunt Shuts Down Highway 140

 

Klamath Falls, Ore.– A Chiloquin man was arrested late last night after an 8-hour standoff with Klamath County Deputies and State Police. According to reports, a Swan Lake resident caught 22-year old Silas Atchley stealing guns from their home. The victim exchanged gunfire with Atchley as he fled the scene to another home where he stole an ATV, eventually barricading himself in an empty mobile home where police eventually took him into custody. Sheriff Frank Skrah said Atchley may be responsible for as many as five burglaries and three stolen vehicles reported yesterday. Atchley already had several cases against him pending in Klamath County. More charges are expected to be filed today. Highway 140 was shut down for several hours Thursday while police searched for the suspect.
