Subject Of Wilson County Manhunt Caught

A man who was the subject of an intense search Thursday in Wilson County has been found.

Grady Edwards was arrested Thursday night in Bailey after deputies received information about his possible location. Deputies say the wanted man was seen walking down the street and was caught after a brief foot chase.

Edwards was wanted on three felony larceny charges and was spotted Thursday morning in a Speight School Road neighborhood, that's outside of Saratoga. Deputies used tracking dogs and an airplane in their efforts to find Edwards.

He's in the Wilson County jail on a $10,000 bond.

    They spent $15,000.00 looking for him. Probably already sold the items he stole and used it for his bond. Our justice system is a joke.

    You have to blame the Magistrate for his bond, not law enforcement, it's just their job to catch him putting him in jail is the responsibility of the magistrate and I agree he should have been under more bond!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It never ceases to amaze me...they spend all that time money & resources on catching this guy...then let him out on $10,000 bail. Please explain this behavior.
