WACO, TX (KXXV) - Police arrested a 36-year-old man after he fled from police in what turned out to be a stolen truck.

Alfredo Martinez Perez Jr. faces charges of evading arrest on foot and evading arrest in a vehicle after fleeing from officers Thursday morning. Perez was also named in a theft warrant out of Lacy Lakeview and other previous Waco city warrants.

Early Thursday morning, Waco police attempted to stop a truck with a missing front license plate near 18th and Columbus Ave. Police say the driver fled south on 18th, passing under the interstate and crossing La Salle Ave. He finally crashed out near 18th and Gurley Ln. in south Waco.

The driver fled on foot, but was caught a short time later. Police later determined that the truck he was driving had been stolen from Aaron's Motors, who were not aware it had been taken.
