As the officer pulled around the suspect fled on foot. Officer went to the vehicle where suspect was sitting in, and found several keys belonging to vehicles at Dickerson Auto.
Officers then found the business had been broken into and contacted the owner and Criminal Investigator Greg Johnson. After officers and the owners left the scene, the suspect came back at approximately 4:00 a.m.
Officers again found the suspect back in the carlot trying to steal a pickup truck. Fleming pulled in the lot along with officer Troy Harper. The suspect jumped into a pickup truck and officers attempted to get him out of the vehicle. The suspect cranked the truck and tried to leave the scene.
