The officer followed footprints from the motorcycle, into nearby shrubs and trees, where he found the suspect, 23 year old Dakota Fratzke. He was initially charged with Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia-2 Counts, and Interference with Official Acts.

The investigation also determined Fratzke was in possession of a stolen motorcycle which he left in the street, along with another motorcycle he took from a local residence, earlier in the evening.

Fratzke was then charged with 2 Counts of Theft in the 2nd Degree, Criminal Trespass, and some traffic violations.

He was taken to the Fayette County jail and held until his initial court appearance.
