MARSHVILLE – The Union County Sheriff's Office used a drone July 17 to catch a suspect wanted on several warrants, including meth trafficking.

Deputies had one handy because they anticipated 50-year-old Randy Prevatte to run away, officials said. And when they approached a home at 6300 block of Pleasant Hill Church Road, officials said Prevatte ran toward the woods.

Deputies tracked Prevatte for one-four of a mile before taking him into custody.
