Police catch man wanted for robbery

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Police have caught a man wanted this week for the robbery of a home in Marion.

Shortly after noon Friday, Cedar Rapids police officers spotted 23-year-old Tyler Deemer near the Motel 6 in the 3300 block of Southgate Court SW.

Police say Deemer tried to run away through some woods when officers approached him.

Officers set a perimeter around the area, and a K9 unit tracked Deemer to his hiding place.

After a chase, officers took Deemer into custody.
He is now in the Linn County Jail, charged with a Probation Violation Warrant.

Additional charges for robbery and car theft in Marion could come later.
