Fugitive from Kansas jailed in Hays after wreck

An automobile accident resulted last week in the capture of a man wanted in Kansas for kidnapping and other charges.

Kyle Police Chief Jeff Barnett said officers were summoned to FM 150 and Old Post Road around 4:22 p.m. on Oct. 6 and, as part of routine investigation, ran a check on the licenses of the drivers.

When they ran that of Michael Dylan Dakin, it revealed a warrant out of Riley County, Kansas for aggravated kidnapping, a first-degree felony. It was subsequently learned that there were other warrants outstanding as well, one for rape and two for aggravated criminal sodomy.

Dakin, 27, who listed an address of 545 Voyager Cove in Kyle, was jailed in lieu of a $125,000 bond.

Authorities in Kansas say what happens next depends on whether Dakin fights extradition. “He will have an extradition hearing and can waive it or fight it,” said a spokesman for the Riley County Police Department. “If he fights it he will go to court there, if he waves it we will pick him up and bring him back here,” the spokesman said.
