Police have recovered a trove of stolen items from a house on MLK Boulevard Tuesday, and the suspect is the subject of a multi-agency manhunt.
According to law enforcement, officers were at the residence of Willie Gene Qualls to recover a 4-wheeler when they noticed other items around the home that looked suspicious.
After obtaining a search warrant, a large number of items that have previously been reported stolen were recovered.
Qualls is currently on the run near Magee with a multi-agency manhunt underway. According to the Simpson County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were pursuing Magee along US Highway 49 in a stolen vehicle earlier today. Qualls allegedly ran the vehicle into the woods and then fled on foot.
