Jackson county law enforcement officials celebrated a peaceful end to a long manhunt in Graceville Tuesday.

Authorities responded to a dispute on piano road last night when James Ammons fled the home on foot. That's when the search began.

Graceville- Ammons was on felony probation for driving on a suspended license but had stopped reporting with his probation officer and was considered a fugitive.

Neighbors spotted Ammons this morning and called police.

"Anytime we're in a neighborhood where there's people who reside or we don't know what the individual may be capable of doing- don't know if they may be looking for transportation out of the area or what- we put all our efforts into locating that individual as soon as we can and getting them into custody" said Jackson County Sheriff, Lou Roberts.

Bloodhounds sniffed Ammons out around 1P.M. Tuesday hiding in bushes near Piano Road in Graceville.
