Sheriff Bonds says with the assistance of citizens and the Department of Correction North Central Unit K-9 Team, Callahan was tracked through the woods north of Hwy. 14 and Amick Chicken Farm, where he was apprehended by the North Central K-9 Team.

Callahan was transported to the Stone County Detention Center where he awaits a parole hearing and new criminal charges.
