Robeson County Man Leads Police on Manhunt

JUNE 2, 2006 -- A Robeson County man is in custody after a manhunt in the Castle Hayne area.

Authorities captured Kelton Lewis Oxendine, 40, on Jamaica Drive. They had to use a taser gun to subdue him.

They say he robbed a woman at the Wal-Mart in Monkey Junction and left in a stolen blue Honda. He then ditched the car and took off on foot.

Deputies finally tracked him down after a resident reported seeing him hiding in bushes. Oxendine was not carrying a gun.
