Brown said White had eluded a K-9 deputy the day before when he was being pulled over for having an improper tag. He said authorities had also determined White was wanted out of Florida.

Deputies said as they pulled up to the home where they believed White was, White drove up on a moped, jumped off and ran into a wooded area.

The deputies and K-9 tracked White and eventually found him hiding inside a dishwasher underneath a porch at a nearby mobile home park.
