The Missouri Highway Patrol has caught a fugitive who escaped an Iowa prison while on work detail on Monday. Around 9:30 Wednesday morning a trooper was stationary on Missouri Highway 153 in Stoddard County monitoring traffic when the suspect passed in a white car. The trooper pulled onto the roadway behind the car. Trooper Clark Parrott tells KZIM-KSIM it was at the time the man began to accelerate and the trooper attempted to pull him over. The chase ended in a wreck where no one was injured. The suspect, Steven Adcock, was discovered to be a fugitive from an Iowa prison. He was serving a 16 year prison sentence for larceny, possession of drugs, fleeing and assaulting a law officer. Adcock was driving a stolen vehicle from Kansas City. He is being held at the Stoddard County Sheriff’s office in Bloomfield. He will appear tomorrow for extradition proceedings.
