BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG) -- The Bay County Sheriff's Office has arrested an attempted murder suspect after a more than 12-hour manhunt.

Stonie Norris was wanted for trying to kill two people during a home invasion in Putnam County.

The Sheriff's Office started looking for Norris Sunday night after he was spotted in the area of Carla Lane and Aberdeen Loop in Lynn Haven.

During the manhunt, deputies found a Ford F-150 they believe Norris stole in Lake City. A gun was also found inside the truck.

About 6:30 Monday morning, a resident called the Sheriff's Office to report seeing a man matching Norris' description in a creek bed at Highway 231 and Evergreen Cemetery.

The Sheriff's Office brought in the helicopter and a K9 unit. Deputies also conducted a shoulder to shoulder grid search of the heavily wooded area. They found Norris hiding under a pile of pine straw.
