SANDERSVILLE, Ga. — A man was arrested Thursday morning in Sandersville for theft by taking and kidnapping.

According to a Facebook post by the Sandersville Police Department, the patrol division arrested Dangelo Nelson of Dublin. 

Nelson was charged with theft by taking and kidnapping in Sandersville.

The Criminal Investigation Division has outstanding warrants for home invasion, aggravated assault and cruelty to children in the third degree from a previous incident that happened in Sandersville.

Nelson was also charged with an outstanding probation warrant out of Laurens County. 

Ken Parker with Sandersville PD says Nelson has been on the run since February after he committed a home invasion. He has been evading law enforcement ever since. 

Parker says according to the victim, he forced her by gun point to drive to the convenience store in town, and when the victim went inside she asked someone to call the police, he then took the car and fled the scene. 

Later, they found the car at the victims apartment complex. When they went up to the apartment, he ran from police. He fell into a culvert and dropped a gun, and then was then taken in by police.

According to the post, more charges are possible, those being possession of firearm by a convicted felon.
