Manuel Mitcheson, who escaped from police Monday afternoon and fled shoeless and shirtless through northeast Price, was still at large Wednesday.

The 20-year-old burglary suspect evaded a perimeter set up by officers from multiple law enforcement agencies shortly after his escape. He was last seen in the vicinity of 800 North and 800 East Streets.

This area of Price is just south of undeveloped desert land and also close to Mead's Wash, a brushy gully that runs mainly north-south through town.

According to Price Police Chief Kevin Drolc, Mitcheson bolted from police headquarters, 910 N. 700 E. at about 3:30 p.m. At 3:36, he entered a nearby home but was chased away by a woman wielding a pair of scissors. He then ran through several backyards and alleys, dropping a black hooded sweatshirt as he ran.

According to the chief, Mitcheson is Hispanic, 5'8", 160 lbs, short black hair, brown eyes, multiple tattoos on neck and arms.

On Wednesday, Capt. Bill Barnes said Mitcheson was without shirt or shoes because that is the way he was brought in for questioning. Police found the hoodie for him. Technically, he was not in custody but he was also not entirely cooperative, the captain explained.

As to the escape, Barnes said it was inattentiveness. "I have noticed that two other people who have been brought in since then have been handcuffed to the table," he added. Anyone with information on Mitcheson's whereabouts is encouraged to contact the Price Police Department at 435 636-3190.

Mitcheson would be well advised to turn himself in, Barnes said.
