Waseca police look for armed suspect 26 May 17

Waseca police are searching for a Waterville man who fled from police on foot Wednesday night. A rural resident called the Waseca County Sheriff’s Office about a suspicious man who had come to the door asking for tools to repair a flat tire. When the deputy attempted to check on the man he fled on Highway 13. The man and woman passenger allegedly then fled on foot. The woman was caught and identified the driver as 55-year-old James Otis. Otis reportedly had a weapon  and methamphetamine as well as warrants for drug charges and illegal possession of a firearm. The sheriff’s office believes Otis has left the area and is not a danger to the public.
