Skip to comments.Pulaski Man Nabbed After 4-Day Search (BEST arrest photo EVER!)

A Pulaski man who allegedly stole a police patrol car and several other vehicles during a four-day effort to avoid arrest was nabbed early Wednesday afternoon in Wythe County. He was charged in Pulaski County last month with failing to complete drug court. The incident began around 1:23 p.m. Sunday when a deputy attempted to stop a car that was reported stolen. Following a road pursuit, the vehicle stopped and the occupants fled on foot, but both were caught and arrested. BUT....After being taken to the hospital for a blood test related to the DUID, Drain was taken to the magistrates office in Christiansburg, where he was able to partially remove his restraints and gain access to the driver compartment of a deputys car (uh oh). Drain allegedly fled in the patrol car and abandoned it in Montgomery County. Sunday evening, a county resident discovered clothing matching what Drain was wearing discarded near a building where camouflage clothing and boots, as well as a handgun, were missing.
Police discovered Monday a 2001 Volvo station wagon had been stolen in the Pilot area. Police suspected Drain stole it based on sightings, tips and tracking information, he said.
The search continued Tuesday and Wednesday morning, until Drain was located and arrested. He was being held without bond in New River Valley Regional Jail Wednesday afternoon.

So, this is the camo he stole. He’s a fugitive trying to hide, so he throws his clothes away and steals THIS? Incredible.
Good thing the cops got to him before hypothermia set in.
Yeah, I suppose.....
It’s camo in Pulaski where that’s what everyone else is wearing!
I guess this is in Virginia?
The deputy in the picture is funnier than the perp, what with the two pistol mags, and what appears to be an AR mag sticking out of his belly. And then there’s his Krispy Kreme belly itself there for all to see!
I’ve lived here in Pulaski since 1986. That’s the first time I’ve ever seen that version of camo...and I know a lot of hunters.
And he may not have wanted to steal that police cruiser in the first place. Dumb crooks never cease to amaze me. Ever.
“Don’t Panic, It’s Organic!”
Cody Drain is still single, Girls!
He likes long drives, short walks and finding new clothes.
“I guess this is in Virginia” Yup
Don’t taze me, Bro.!
I'm trying to be subtle here in my sarcasm.
Maybe the point is going over your head.
Yep. But he must have moved recently from Florida. LOL!
Probably I’m just not as clever and brilliant as you. Then again, maybe your idea of sarcasm just really sucks.
And in the words of Forrest Gump, "That's all I've got to say about that."
Guessing his lawyer won’t let him wear that to court.
don’t you mean his public defender? ;>)
I’m guessing he only stole the shirts?
