GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

Three adults and one juvenile were taken into custody after a foot chase in the Dukedom community on Monday afternoon.

Robert Trent, Jr., 21, of Pilot Oak, was charged with burglary second degree and fleeing and evading police first degree.

Peggy McManus, 41, of Pilot Oak, was charged with improper equipment and license to be in possession.

Tiffany Trent, 22, of Pilot Oak, was charged with obstructed vision and/or windshield and disorderly conduct second degree.

The juvenile was charged with disorderly conduct.

According to Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon, deputies from his office and the Weakley County Sheriff's Office had been trying to find Robert Trent, Jr.

Sheriff Redmon said he is a suspect in several burglaries in Graves, Hickman and Weakley County, Tenn. There was also an outstanding arrest warrant in Marshall County for burglary second degree.

At 3:15 p.m., deputies were en-route to the Dukedom area when they pulled over a vehicle on K129, about 1 mile north of Dukedom.

They say Trent was a passenger in the vehicle. When it stopped, they say he ran, jumped a fence and ran into the woods.

Deputies used a K-9 unit without any results.

Weakley County Sheriff's deputies were in the Dukedom area and helped with the search for Trent.

According to the Graves County Sheriff's Office, Trent's mother, Peggy McManus, was the driver of the vehicle.

Deputies set up a parameter and around 5 p.m. they say they saw a white vehicle pull onto Finley Road headed toward a house where Trent's relatives were inside.

At about 5:15 p.m. deputies say they saw the vehicle that McManus was in earlier and the white vehicle pull out of Finley Road. They say it appeared they were traveling together.

Deputies pulled over both vehicles on K129 about a half-mile north of Dukedom.

During questioning of the drivers and a search of the vehicles, Trent was found hiding in the trunk of his mother's 1999 Chevrolet Camaro. He was taken into custody without incident.

McManus was arrested on various traffic violations.

According to deputies, Trent's sister, Tiffany Trent, was the driver of the other vehicle. She was arrested after becoming disorderly.

Deputies say the juvenile was cited and released to a family member for disorderly conduct.
