The search continues in Mayes County, where several agencies are still searching a wooded area for a man who they believe is armed and dangerous.

The Mayes County Sheriff’s Office and several other agencies are still searching for a burglary suspect who they say stole two cars in Craig County then fled south to Langley.

Officers say two suspects were taken into custody in Craig County and the third suspect, Andrew Frazier, took off and led police on a chase.

They say he crashed west of Langley and took off on foot in a wooded area near the river in the Maplebrook area.

Law enforcement officers from multiple agencies have been searching the area, along with assistance from a search plane and an Oklahoma Highway Patrol helicopter.

One woman who lives nearby says she was at home with her four-year-old son when Frazier tried to break into her car.  Kristy Skaggs says she was on the porch when she heard police helicopters flying over her home and she started hearing patrol cars coming down the road.

Frazier didn’t steal her car, but she says those moments were very scary.

“I’ve been sick all afternoon, just thinking about what could’ve been, what could’ve happened,” said Skaggs.  “Especially, I was at home alone with my four-year-old, and him being armed, it could’ve went any way.”

The Mayes County Sheriff’s Office, along with OHP, the Craig County Sheriff’s Office, and GRDA police are still searching for Frazier.

They say he is considered armed and dangerous and are asking people to lock their doors.
