Army Deserter Arrested

Kanawha County sheriff's deputies got a tip on Monday about a man who allegedly deserted from the U.S. Army. Capt. Sean Crosier says the tip came in that 35-year old Matthew Jack Kirk was staying at his parents' home on Long Branch Road in Charleston. Deputies went to the home and took Kirk into custody without incident, Crosier said. Kirk was taken to the South Central Regional Jail and then picked up by Army Officials.
