NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Humphreys County Sheriff's officials warned the public of a suspect on the run considered to be armed and dangerous.

Bobby Wilkins was captured Tuesday night. Officials said he was a suspect in multiple burglaries and thefts in Hickman and Humphreys County.

He allegedly broke into and stole from a home off of Highway 230 Monday night. Officials say he also led Hickman County law enforcement on a chase Saturday in a stolen Ford Escape SUV.

Wilkins may have used a stolen four-wheeler for transportation. Officials urged neighbors to lock their house and car doors during their search.
