MCLENNAN COUNTY, TX (KXXV) -

Two people were arrested over the weekend after a manhunt.

Keith Brown, 49, was arrested after a deputy stopped his vehicle for a traffic violation around 2 p.m. Saturday at Loop 340 and Highway 6 near the Jack Harwell Detention Center.

While the deputy was talking to Brown, the man ran away into the wooded area nearby.

The Sheriff's Office had a helicopter circling the area and deputies on the ground looking for the man, but were unable to find him.

They called off their search around 5 p.m. because of the warm temperatures outside.

Deputies continued searching for him throughout the night.

Investigators learned that Brown might have been at a home in the 1700 block of Alexander in Waco.

When deputies were there at 1 a.m. on Sunday, they spoke to a woman and man who lived there and found a meth pipe on the counter, as well as individually packaged meth and other prescription pills.

Lorrie Beth Chmiel, 54, admitted the drugs were hers and was arrested for three counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of possessions of a dangerous drug.

Chmiel remained in the McLennan County Jail on Monday on a $58,000 bond.

A deputy was on patrols off La Salle around 9 a.m. Sunday morning when he spotted 49-year-old Keith Brown near La Salle and 18th Street in Waco.

Deputies set up a perimeter between 18th Street and 12th Street and were able to catch him. A K-9 was brought in to assist deputies, but was not needed.

Keith Brown was arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine and a parole violation.

He remained in the McLennan County Jail on Monday on a $250,000 bond.
