The man wanted for allegedly stealing two vehicles in western Oklahoma has been captured.

Officials with the Beckham County Sheriff’s Office have confirmed that 30-year-old Kasey Patrick Scott was captured in Kiowa County, Colorado, after a pursuit in the southeast part of the state.

Scott was reportedly still driving the vehicle he stole following another pursuit which ended in a crash early Monday morning after a Beckham County deputy spotted him driving a stolen vehicle from Clarendon, Texas.

Officials say Scott crashed that vehicle at Sweetwater, eluded multiple agencies on foot, before stealing the second vehicle a couple of miles east of the community.

Later in the day Scott was spotted on a doorbell camera, along with the stolen vehicle, at a home in Guymon. He would later allegedly take a can of gas from the residence.

Officials say he apparently then made his way to Colorado where law enforcement again engaged him in pursuit and arrested him.
