TYNGSBORO -- Tyngsboro police continued to be on the lookout Sunday night for a suspect who reportedly evaded Dunstable police Saturday night and headed toward town/
On Sunday, officials said they were still searching for the man who they believe may be hiding out with friends or family.
Tyngsboro police Lt. Chris Chronopoulos said police worked Saturday from about 5 to 7 p.m., searching for Edward Kloucek, of Dunstable, who is wanted on several warrants. Tyngsboro Police Chief Richard Howe said he believed Kloucek had attempted to run away from Dunstable police after a traffic stop. Kloucek headed toward a wooded area in Dunstable close to Dunstable Road, Cummings Lane and Lowell Road, which abuts Tyngsboro. Massachusetts State Police were also called in for assistance with a helicopter to aid in the search along with K9 units.
On Sunday, police said the suspect still remained at large though they do not believe he is in the area any longer. Tyngsboro police posted to their Facebook page a request for Kloucek to turn himself in to police at the either Dunstable or Tyngsboro police stations.
Howe said Kloucek's listed warrants are related to alleged assault and battery on a police officer, intimidation of a witness and various firearms charges. Officials broadcast Saturday, however, that they did not believe the public was in any danger.
The suspect is about 5 feet 10 inches tall with a thin build, and was last seen wearing dark, khaki-type clothing. Anyone with information related to Kloucek are encouraged to call the Dunstable Police Department at 978-649-7445.
Dunstable police could not be reached for comment.
