An armed and dangerous fugitive was arrested by the Borger Police Department on Tuesday.
According to Lt. Anthony Griffin of BPD, the department received information on March 13 that Levi Whitecrow Ollis, 24, of Borger, was currently at a residence in the 1000 block of North Coble Street.
BPD had knowledge of the fact that Ollis had an outstanding parole violation warrant for his arrest. The warrant was for possession of a controlled substance. The department also had knowledge of the fact that Ollis was listed as an armed and dangerous fugitive, Lt. Griffin said.
Once the department received notice of his known location, officers set up surveillance on the residence. During the surveillance, Ollis was observed leaving the residence on foot. After observing Ollis leaving the residence, officers tried to apprehend him. As they approached him, he ran into another residence in the 1000 block of North Coble.
Lt. Griffin said a perimeter was set up around this residence by officers and a short standoff ensued. A short time after that, Ollis came out of the residence and gave himself up to officers with no further incident. He was taken into custody by officers at this time.
Once Ollis was in custody, officers conducted a search of the area. During the search, officers found a loaded handgun they believe was discarded by Ollis during the incident. He was transported to BPD where he was processed and incarcerated in the City of Borger Jail Facility.
According to Lt. Griffin, Ollis was charged with the parole violation warrant along with evading arrest and/or detention, which is a Class A misdemeanor. An additional charge will be pursued through the District Attorneyâ€™s office pertaining to the suspected weapons offense.
BPD was assisted in this arrest by the Fritch Police Department, Hutchinson County Sheriffâ€™s Office, and the Texas Department of Public Safety.
