Search for armed man still on in N. Carolina national forest

Search for armed man still on in N. Carolina national forest

Deputies said a manhunt is underway in the Pisgah National Forest area.

"Law enforcement will be switching shifts and rotating special response teams to get fresh boots on the ground" Monday at daylight, the sheriff's office said in a posting on its Facebook page Sunday night.

Roads and trails south of the Blue Ridge Parkway and east of U.S. Highway 276 were closed to let investigators conduct their search. At one point, while hikers and campers were crowding the highway, the driver, who they said was Storupe, stopped and stole a mountain bike at gunpoint. Mahoney said the suspect is armed.

Deputies say he got out of the auto and onto the stolen bike and fled into the woods.

He has a shaved head and a distinct tattoo on his neck, just under his chin, deputies say.

On Sunday, Sliding Rock, Cradle of Forestry, Looking Glass Falls and the Pisgah Ranger Station visitor center are all closed.

Monday marked the third day of a search for a man considered "armed and unsafe".

Authorities say Stroupe has a history of violence and resisting law enforcement.

They say he has several outstanding warrants, and could face more charges.

He said deputies briefly chased the man until he exited his vehicle and fled into the Pisgah National forest, near Sliding Rock.

At 2:30, NCDOT reported USA 276 closed in both directions near Brevard.
