Stillwater man arrested, accused of stealing a truck, running from a crash, and hiding in the woods

STILLWATER, Okla. — A Stillwater man is in custody after police say he stole a car, ran from a crash, and hid in the woods for hours.

Witnesses called police just before 2 a.m. Friday morning. When officers arrived, witnesses said a car hit a trailer and the driver had left.

The car, a 2021 Jeep Gladiator, and the trailer were both damaged. Officers were able to find the owner of the Jeep, who said the truck was recently stolen from Absolute Storage. Another team of officers went to the business, who found another car that was vandalized.

Officers tracked down the suspect, identified as Andrew Traw, several hours later. Traw ran into the woods but was later found by K9 officers.
