One of the Liberty County's Top 10 Most Wanted fugitives is now behind bars.

Liberty County authorities say Johnny Dean Knight was found hiding in a kitchen cabinet at his home in the 100 block of County Road 4010 Monday afternoon.

Knight had been wanted on two misdemeanor evading arrest charges out of Liberty County, theft of wire and felony evading from Chambers County and several misdemeanor traffic warrants from the Deer Park Police Department.

Authorities say Knight did not resist arrest on Monday, and he was taken to the Liberty County Jail, where he's being held on bonds totaling $11,500. No bond has been set, as yet, for the Deer Park Police Department misdemeanor warrants although Johnny Knight has a "hold" on him for that agency.
