The Lawrence Police Department confirmed the arrest of Stephen Marlow, who is wanted in Ohio, on Sunday after being notified by law enforcement in Ohio that Marlow could be in Kansas.

According to Lawrence Police, there was reason to believe the man was in Lawrence so patrol supervisors initiated a city-wide search.

An officer with the Lawrence Police Department noticed a vehicle matching the description of Marlow’s vehicle turn eastbound onto West 23rd from Ousdahl Rd. and relayed the information.

As police were en route, the vehicle turned into a parking lot off 23rd Street, where the suspect exited the vehicle and was safely taken into custody.
