The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office is currently seeking Terry Don Wooten, 39, of Powell, for multiple theft and burglary warrants.

Wooten is 6’4”, has brown hair, hazel eyes and weighs approximately 200 pounds. He is wanted in connection with multiple thefts in the area. On Wednesday, Wooten fled deputies in a gold Chevrolet Impala with a Jackson County (39) tag on DeKalb County Road 48 near Powell and is believed to still be in the area.

“If the public has any information on where Mr. Wooten is hiding or spots him, please give us a call,” DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said. “He led our deputies and investigators on a dangerous chase earlier today. Someone could have been seriously hurt or killed.”

Wooten is suspected to have stolen a motorcycle from the Powell area several weeks ago and is suspected to have broken into several houses as well.

“Wooten has deprived many citizens of both DeKalb and Jackson Counties of their property, and we wish to bring him to justice for it,” Welden said.

If you see Wooten or know of his whereabouts, call the DCSO at 256-845-3801.
