After an intense search that started Wednesday afternoon, Columbia City Police apprehended Skyler Roff, 34, of Columbia City around 4:15 p.m. Thursday. Roff had fled police after the police tried to arrest him on three misdemeanor warrants, according to a police officer Thursday evening.

Police received numerous tips, but one tip led police to a secluded property in northern Whitley County where Roff was arrested without incident, according to a news release from the Columbia City Police Department. The nature of the charges against Roff was not released.

Local police were assisted by the Indiana State Police and the Whitley County Sheriff's Department.
