UPDATE: Man In Custody After Running From Killeen Police

Posted: Updated:
UPDATE: June 3, 2014, 2:45 p.m. -- A Killeen man is in custody after running from police.

Around 2:05p.m. near Stan Schleuter and Clear Creek, Killeen police officers tried to pull the man over for traffic violations and a known felony warrant.

The man then sped off east in a green suburban making it Cheyenne and Highway 190. Police say the man ditched his suburban behind a printing shop located off Cheyenne, jumped a fence and then ran across the busy highway, which is also illegal.

He then ran toward the Stone Hill apartment complex and hid inside a dumpster. Killeen police called out a canine unit to help search for the man, and quickly found him hiding. "You know, people that try to hide from us, they'll hide just about anywhere. I don't know if it was worth the stench," KPD public information officer Carroll Smith said.

The man was arrested and faces several charges on top of his existing felony warrant including traffic violations, evading arrest on foot, and other charges that could result from today's chase. Smith also says the man is a suspect for numerous recent burglaries around Killeen.
