The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office is currently seeking Terry Don Wooten (39 of Powell) for multiple theft and burglarly warrants.

Wooten is 6’4”, has brown hair, hazel eyes, and weighs around 200 pounds. He is wanted in connection to multiple thefts in the area. Earlier today, Wooten fled deputies in a Gold Chevrolet Impala with a Jackson County (39) tag on DeKalb County Road 48 (near Powell).


He is believed to still be in the area.

Wooten is suspected to have stolen a motorcycle from the Powell area several weeks ago, and is suspected to have broken into several other houses.

If you spot Wooten or know of his whereabouts, call the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office at (256)845-3801.

DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said of the incident: “If the public has any information on where Mr. Wooten is hiding or spots him, please give us a call. He led our deputies and investigators on a dangerous chase earlier today. Someone could have been seriously hurt or killed.”

“Wooten has deprived many citizens of both DeKalb and Jackson Counties of their property, and we wish to bring him to justice for it,” he said.

“God Bless!” Concluded Sheriff Welden.
