UNION CO., Ill. - As is usually the case, we were advised that the man authorities were searching for in Union County was captured a few hours after the matter was brought to the attention of the public.

Of course, this means that the suspect - who was considered armed and suicidal - was on the loose and armed for an unknown number of hours before the public was even alerted to his prospective presence.

The Union County Sheriff's Department posted around 8:30 p.m. last night, Tuesday, September 25, that Josh Baker was being sought and was considered armed and suicidal.

The announcement that Baker had been found and taken into custody was made very early this morning, around 5:30 a.m.

No details have formally been issued to media as to Baker's capture, including whether it was without incident, where he was located, or any other pertinent bits of information. However, the outlet that poses as a TV station, WSIL, reports that Baker was located inside the Walmart store in Anna.

If we learn more, we'll post.
