MNPD’s South Precinct detectives arrested Hamilton County fugitive Carleo McElvain, 23, near an Apache Trail apartment building Wednesday, recovering a pistol stolen during an April 14th robbery on Atrium Way.
Acting on information concerning McElvain’s whereabouts, detectives saw him getting into the passenger seat of a silver Dodge Challenger. As officers attempted to stop the car, McElvain fled on foot. He was found hiding between parked vehicles. The stolen gun, a nine-millimeter semi-automatic pistol, was found wedged in the Challenger’s passenger seat.
McElvain is charged locally with theft of a firearm, felon in possession of a handgun, and evading arrest. He is on Hamilton County’s top 12 most wanted list for 16 separate charges, including robbery, aggravated burglary, and felon in possession of a firearm.
