A Diboll man led police on a foot chase early Wednesday morning after he was spotted near a Lufkin business where the alarms had sounded.

Shortly before 2 a.m., a responding officer saw Javonte D. Hunt, 19, running from the scene in the 500 block of North Brentwood Drive.

An officer tried to take Hunt into custody, but he ran from him. Other officers joined in the pursuit and were able to catch him nearby. A pat down of the suspect produced one gram of crack cocaine.

Back at the scene, authoriites found the front door not secure, but no signs of forced entry were present, and employees of the business did not find any property missing.

Hunt was arrested and charged with evading arrest and possession of a controlled substance. His bond is set at $26,500.
