Hancock County Fugitive Caught in Burlington, Iowa
A Hancock County man wanted on a number of charges in two different counties was taken into custody Wednesday.
According to Hancock County Sheriff Scott Bentzinger, 33 year old Michael Donaldson of LaHarpe was found hiding under insulation in a basement in a home in Burlington, Iowa about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Donaldson had been considered armed and dangerous. He was wanted on several felony charges in Hancock and McDonough counties.
Bentzinger said the search for Donaldson intensified last week when he told authorities he would turn himself in and then didn’t.
An investigation is underway to see if there were others helping Donaldson hide from police.
