A recently paroled, ‘dangerous’ felon who had already given U.S. Marshals the slip once was captured here June 18 after an 11-hour manhunt in and around the Finney Lake swamp off Highway 36 West.
Billy Lee Owens was spotted parked in a stolen flatbed truck behind Midway Church in the wee hours Wednesday morning. The same person spotted the truck again about 6 a.m., reported it as a suspicious vehicle to the LCSO and a deputy responded.
Billy Lee Owens shortly after his arrest here.
