Ferguson

SOUTH BELOIT - A Beloit man wanted by multiple agencies was arrested after months at-large, with South Beloit police officers finding him attempting to hide in a clothes dryer.

South Beloit Police Chief Adam Truman said Kyle N. Ferguson, 27, was arrested on Sept. 1 following a tip to the Greater Beloit Area Crime Stoppers at a home in the 500 block of Shirland Avenue.

Winnebago County deputies surrounded the home while South Beloit officers went in to look for Ferguson, Truman said.

After searching the home, officers found Ferguson - who is estimated at around 140 pounds - attempting to hide under clothes in a clothes dryer.

"We've seen all sorts of things," Truman said. "People try to hide from us and it's not uncommon, unfortunately."

Truman said he's seen suspects attempt to hide in crawl spaces, attics, and basements, but never in a dryer.

According to the report, Ferguson did not resist officers once they found him.

"The officers did a great job," Truman said. "They handled it very well."

Ferguson was wanted on two Rock County warrants including an Aug. 31 hit-and-run in the 1600 block of Cleveland Street. He was also wanted for warrants from the Wisconsin Department of Corrections (DOC) and a bench warrant from Marathon County for operating a vehicle without owner's consent.
