CORUNNA — An Owosso man who failed to appear at his sentencing in August 2018 for controlled substances and instead went on the run, has been apprehended.
Tyler Hoy, 28, was arrested on an outstanding warrant Sunday for failing to appear for his August 2018 sentencing on meth and cocaine possession charges.
During his arrest by Michigan State Police on the warrant, Hoy allegedly was in possession of a firearm and has been charged with two counts of felony firearms, carrying a concealed weapon, firearm possession by a felon and possession of ammunition by a felon, all felony charges.
Hoy was arraigned on the new charges Monday in 66th District Court by Judge Terrance Dignan; he pleaded not guilty. No bond amount is listed in online court records.
Hoy has numerous prior misdemeanor convictions, including a false pretenses charge from 2009 that was dismissed upon the completion of 3 months probation, disorderly conduct, domestic violence and minor in possession of alcohol in 2011, and retail fraud in 2012.
His next appearances in district court are 10 a.m. July 10 for a probable cause conference, and 1:15 p.m. July 16 for a preliminary examination.
