Ezra Patton was silent as officers walked him into the Burke County Magistrate’s Office on Monday afternoon.
Patton, 23, has been wanted since May 18 after an armed robbery left himself and two others injured.
He was found at around 11:40 a.m. Monday after a concerned citizen reported that a man matching his description was at Healthy Petz Veterinarian Clinic on Enola Road, the MDPS release said. Police positively identified Patton and took him into custody.
He was served with an indictment for assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, robbery with a dangerous weapon and assault by pointing a gun, according to a release from the Morganton Department of Public Safety.
A previous release said officers responded to 118 Lenoir Road on May 17 after Richard Hidalgo reported an armed robbery. Hidalgo was found with gunshot wounds to the pelvic area and told police that Patton and Kristen Jewel Costner had come to his home, leading to an altercation.
Costner was found driving a car down Bouchelle Street, then led police on a high-speed chase to the old Starlight Fish Camp on Amherst Road, the release said. Costner and Patton were found with life-threatening stab wounds.
Costner, who was charged under the name Kristen Jewel Ellis, has been charged with felony flee to elude, reckless driving to endanger, assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury with intent to kill, robbery with a dangerous weapon, assault inflicting serious bodily injury and trafficking opiates, according to a previous News Herald article.
Patton was placed in the Burke-Catawba District Confinement Facility under a $500,000 secured bond with a court date set for July 29, the latest release said.
