By  | 

He was being called Rapid City's most wanted fugitive by police, but after a five hour standoff earlier this week, 23-year old Saul Crowe of Rapid City is now behind bars.
Crowe made his first appearance in Seventh Circuit Court Thursday morning.

Crowe was wanted for firearm-related incidents, a warrant for burglary and also wanted for questioning about his potential involvement in two shootings.
Crowe has already been charged with second degree burglary from an incident that allegedly took place in September.
He faces up to 15 years behind bars, if convicted.
Crowe is being held without bond on that charge.
Thursday morning, Crowe made his first appearance on a charge of possession of a controlled drug or substance, in this case meth from October 31st when the standoff took place.
He faces up to five years behind bars on that charge.
He is also being charged with resisting arrest by threatening or using physical force or violence against a law enforcement officer.
That charge carries up to one year behind bars.
Pennington County deputy state's attorney Wayne Venhuizen asked for Crowe's bond to be set at $100,000 on Thursday, because he said he is a suspect in two shootings and has attempted murder charges coming soon.
Venhuizen said during the standoff, Crowe used his girlfriend as a human shield and is both a danger to the community and a flight risk.
Crowe's attorney, Conor Duffy asked for Crowe's bond to be set at $500, because he already has a no bond on the burglary charge.
Judge Scott Bogue set Crowe's bond at $100,000.
