Wayne County sheriff's deputies, above, execute a search warrant Monday at the home of Billy Ray Thompson on Hack Drive near Durham Lake Road. They had chased the man who is wanted on felony, misdemeanor and traffic charges from Durham Lake Road. His vehicle ran into a neighbor's trailer and a tree. The man then fled into nearby woods and escaped. Cpl. Joe Smith's search dog, Maggie, was struck by another deputy's car during the chase, and the pursuit was stopped. The dog was treated, and Smith said he would be working again by Friday.
