LONOKE, AR - Lonoke County deputies are looking for a man they say rammed a patrol car during a chase in a stolen truck.

According to Lt. James Kulesa, an investigator spotted a truck behind a residence on Bowen Road in Lonoke that had been stolen in Cabot several days earlier. Lt. Kulesa says deputies watched the residence until 26-year-old Charles B. Seigrist left in the truck.

When Seigrist would not pull over, deputies say they attempted a "rolling road block" but Seigrist rammed a patrol car to get away. The deputy was not injured.

The chase ended, according to Lt. Kulesa, when Seigrist drove through a field and hit a fence. Seigrist then escaped on foot.

Inside the truck, deputies say they found a .22 rifle, prying tools, and drug paraphernalia. An automatic pistol reported to be in the truck when it was stolen is still missing.

Seigrist is 5'11", 225lbs with brown hair and hazel eyes. He is considered armed and dangerous. Deputies are asking anyone with information about his whereabouts to call the Lonoke County Sheriff’s Office at (501) 676-3000.
