Rice County Officials say a Las Vegas homicide suspect is in custody after being found in Rice County.

60-year-old Mark Doocy of Blooming Prairie as arrested.

The Rice County Sheriff’s Office says deputies located a suspicious vehicle Thursday night at the Flying J Truck Stop off I-35 and Highway 19 in Webster Township.  A check of the registration alerted police that the owner was wanted in connection with a Feb 28 homicide in Vegas.

It was about 4 1/2 hours after deputies initially responded to the scene that officers removed Doocy from the vehicle.  He was arrested and treated by ambulance personnel before being transported to the hospital.
