Authorities Track Down Drug Suspect Who Skipped Trial

An arrest warrant was issued for Ronnie Dabney after he didn't show up to the last day of his own trial Thursday.
    The more than 24 hour search for a man who didn't show up to the last day of his own trial is over tonight.
    Wichita County sheriff's deputies were looking for Ronnie Dabney around the Flying J Truck Stop in the 23-hundred block of Old Jacksboro Highway.
    They say they saw Dabney run from the truck stop.
    Deputies found him just minutes later hiding near the Holiday Creek.
    That's where he was taken into custody around noon.
    Wichita County Sheriff David Duke says Dabney has been hiding out with friends who live on Jasper St.
    Duke says Dabney's friends even concealed his truck with matresses and trash.
    Dabney was on trial in the 30th District Court this week on a charge of manufacturing a controlled substance, more than 400 grams.
    A jury returned a guilty verdict yesterday, even though Dabney wasn't there.
    In May 2010, police say around two thousand grams of liquid meth and around 400 grams of powder meth was seized from Dabney's home, which is located in the 800-block of Rathgeber Rd.
    Officers say the drugs were valued at nearly $140-thousand.
    Dabney faces 15 years to life in prison.
    A sentencing date has not yet been set.
