ARDMORE, Okla. (KXII) - There’s a warrant in Ardmore for a 19-year-old felony burglary suspect.

Police in Ardmore closed in on Devonte Gonzales on Wednesday afternoon, but after searching for several hours, there was no arrest.

Around 2 p.m. Wednesday, officers got a tip on where Gonzales would be and executed a traffic stop on a vehicle. During that stop, Gonzales and a woman fled into a house in a neighborhood near 8th and H Streets Northwest.

The police made several announcements declaring their presence and asking the suspects to come out of the house. The female suspect eventually came out of the house, but Gonzales did not.

They tried to force Gonzales out using gas. When Gonzales didn’t come out, officers entered the house using a canine unit and SWAT team, but Gonzales was already gone.

Ardmore police spent the late afternoon and early evening searching for Gonzales, but he is still on the loose as of Wednesday night. If you see him, do not approach and call the police immediately.
