A local man - said to have fled on foot from a traffic stop - was found hiding under laundry in a Winfield home Saturday evening, according to a report from the Cowley County Sheriff.

Around 7:20 p.m., authorities received a tip that 20-year-old Rocky Brown might be at an address in the 1500 block of Mansfield. Deputies had attempted, earlier in the day, to arrest Brown during a traffic stop in the 200 block of E. Ninth.

Brown was sitting in the passengerís seat of the vehicle and fled on foot. That was around midnight.

Owners of the home on Mansfield gave consent to a search of that residence. Brown was found under some clothes, blankets and a box.

He was taken to the Cowley County Jail on a probation violation and he remained in jail this morning.
