Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: Authorities say Dustin Huff has turned himself in without incident.

UPDATE: Dustin Huff was seen in a person's yard on CR414 around 3:45 this morning. Huff was tracked by Deputies, Officers and canines from the Sheriffs Office, Forest Service and OCC until about 11 a.m. when it became too hot for the canines to track. 

Huff should still be considered armed and dangerous as he made threatening gestures toward one of the recent homeowners he came in contact with.

UPDATE: Dustin Huff was once again seen on CR414 near the Squires/Gladetop area over the weekend. 

Huff approached a Citizen and asked for water and food. The citizen tried to get Huff to turn himself in but Huff stated he would not do that until he finished his mission. 

Tracking dogs were utilized but the dry conditions made tracking impossible. Huff is still believed to be on foot and is still considered armed and dangerous.

Please immediately call 683-1020 to report sightings or information about Huff. There is still a $2000 reward .
