— A Pontotoc County man fleeing from authorities was taken into custody in connection with the theft of 99 head of cattle, according to a statement released Friday by the state Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry.

David Lynn Wallace, 48, of Lynn, is being held on $500,000 bail on 43 counts of larceny of a domestic animal, the Pontotoc District Attorney's office confirmed. No charges have been filed yet, a clerk said.

Agents with the department were searching the Coalgate area Thursday for Larry G. “Snag” Smith Jr., 48, of Finley, on charges of cattle theft. During the manhunt, agents noticed Wallace speed away from the residence. The high-speed pursuit lasted about 6 miles, the release stated.

The cattle belonged to Jet McCoy and are believed to have been missing from his ranch since the first week of October, the release stated.

Smith remains at large.
