Public Alert Update

The Waynesville Police Department is pleased to report that the culprit in the home invasion and burglary investigation has been apprehended. At 12:11 AM this morning, our suspect entered a home in the Victoria Place neighborhood in Waynesville. The resident of the home heard a noise and went to investigate. After seeing the suspect inside his house, a foot pursuit began. Evan Lee Maynard, age 20, was caught fleeing the scene. The suspect was in possession of stolen items taken from multiple locations. The Waynesville Police Officer took Mr. Maynard into custody and transported him to the Warren County Jail. Mr. Maynard has been charged with several felonies and misdemeanor charges and is currently awaiting arraignment. Police work is a collaborative effort between the police department and the citizens of their community. I want to personally thank the citizens of Waynesville for their assistance and cooperation to bring closure to this case.

Respectfully submitted,

Chief Copeland
