Manhunt continues for fleeing suspect; sheriff reminds public to be vigilant

Officials from several different agencies, including the Lamar County Sheriff’s Department, continue to search for a man that fled from DPS Troopers on Sunday morning after a routine traffic stop, according to Sheriff Scott Cass.

sheriffDPS officers pulled the vehicle over around 8 a.m. Sunday on highway 19/24 South near the community of Atlas. The driver repeatedly gave the officer false names, refusing to identify, and then fled on foot to the west.

Several agencies pursued the suspect in a manhunt that lasted all day Sunday, the sheriff said. The man was able to reach a residence on FM 1184 where he used the phone but made no contact with anyone. He then made it to a wooded creek area where he was last seen.

A DPS K9 unit located more than 5 pounds of marijuana in the vehicle, leading to the arrest of a female passenger.

“I just want to remind everyone to stay vigilant in locating this man,” Cass said.  ”Anyone who runs is considered dangerous.”

The 5’10”-6’0” black male is bald headed and was last seen wearing khaki shorts, a yellow shirt and white tennis shoes.

“It appears that the man has no ties to the local community,” Cass said. “It is believed that they were traveling through to Houston.”

If you have seen anyone who matches this description or have any information involving this case, please contact the Lamar County Sheriff’s Department at 903.737.2400.

According to officials with the sheriff’s department, there were no new updates about the case on Tuesday, and the suspect is still at large.

This burned out van is believed to have been used in the burglary of a building on Pine Bluff, which was also set on fire.

Paris fire and police departments are investigating a related series of burglary, arson and auto theft.

Police and firefighters responded to a structure fire at 1850 Pine Bluff St. at 1:57 a.m. Sunday. While they were working on that blaze, a second fire was found at 2429 Clarksville St. that involved a passenger van.

According to Fire Marshal Dale Maberry, both fires are believed to be related.

The passage van was stolen and appears to have been used to burglarize the building on Pine Bluff, which officials believe was set on fire intentionally. Maberry said it seems the van was taken to another location afterward and also set ablaze.

Officials believe this building was deliberately set on fire following a burglary.
