HOLTS SUMMIT — A wanted man was captured Wednesday following a chase with a Callaway County Sheriff's Office K9 unit.

K9 Krieger and his handler were conducting a patrol at 11 a.m. in the Holts Summit area when they spotted Travis Schroer, of Fulton, on a motorcycle. Schroer was wanted by the Missouri Department of Corrections for parole violations, according to the Sheriff's office.

The K9 unit approached Schroer in the area of Hickory Lane and East Simon Boulevard. Schroer abandoned his motorcycle and fled on foot, entering a residence in the 100 block of East Simon Boulevard.

Several deputies and Holts Summit Police Department officers converged on the residence, the Sheriff's office said. K9 Krieger was released into the residence, at which point Schroer leaped through a sliding glass door to escape the house. Deputies and officers pursued, eventually apprehending Schroer following a physical struggle.

He was arrested and taken to the Callaway County Jail and later returned to the custody of the Missouri Department of Corrections.

Separately, deputies conducting an investigation at 7:12 p.m. Tuesday in the Holts Summit area came into contact with Holts Summit resident Dustin Clements, 30. Clements was found to be in possession of methamphetamine and items related to the distribution of drugs, according to the arrest report.

Clements was arrested for felony delivery of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was taken to the Callaway County Jail to be held pending a court bond review.
