CASPER, Wyo. —  A Casper man, who has reportedly evaded police capture on two other occasions, was taken into custody after a foot chase Sunday afternoon.

The Casper Police Department has filed paperwork in the case against Trevor Andrew Wroble. According to a CPD affidavit, Wroble was wanted on several warrants and was a suspect in other crimes, when officers contacted him in Casper, November 24, 2019.

The affidavit says that officers received information Wrobles whereabouts, at approximately 12:30 pm, Sunday. Officers responded to the 1400 block of South Missouri, and made contact with a resident at a private home.

Police say that the occupant of the home intially denied Wroble was inside. It’s reported that, when presented with evidence of a crime that Wroble was suspected in, the occupant confirmed that Wroble was inside, but still did not want officers to enter.

Casper PD officials note that Wroble was suspected of running from officers twice within the las three weeks. Once in a vehicle, and once on foot. 

The occupant of the home said that Wroble knew officers were on scene, and was quoted in the affidavit as saying Wroble “wouldn’t run.” Officers then report hearing noise at the home’s back door.

Police, who were in the rear of the home, say that Wroble exited the building, made eye contact with them, and fled the area. 

Police gave chase, and say that they lost track of Wroble, but found him again behind a shed on the 1400 block of Illinois, in Casper. Officers report giving commands to the suspect, but the suspect instead fled from police, again.

Several commands were reportedly given during the foot chase that followed, and the affidavit says that Wroble surrendered to officers after they threatened deployment of their Tasers.

Wroble was transported to the Natrona County Detention Center and was recommended for three charges of Interference with a Police Officer. Wroble was also confirmed to have three confirmed warrants.

All of those cited or arrested are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law. Charges are subject to change following official filings from the Natrona County District Attorney’s Office
