Wanted Man Runs From Police And Tries To Hide On Roof

Posted: Updated:

Police put one neighborhood on lock down after a man leads them on a foot-chase.  But it was a race the suspect would not win. We ended up getting video of him in the back of a police car. Officers say he was parked illegally in front of a known drug dealers home.  Police went up to him to see why he was there but say he quickly threw something back into the car as he ran away on foot. One officer told us that the suspect tried to hide out in the neighborhood. At one point, he got on someone's roof to avoid capture.  Eventually, he was put into handcuffs.  Investigators say he tossed drugs back into the car he was sitting in before he took off on foot.  Authorities also tell 3 News that he had a warrant out for his arrest.
