WACO, TX — A man has been taken into custody after running from police Monday afternoon.

The Waco Police Department says shortly before 12:30 p.m., officers were in the 700 block of Olive Drive when a man involved in a disturbance ran from officers.

Officers believed the man was armed when he ran.

Several area streets were blocked off, including Clifton and Witt, the 700 block of Olive and other smaller streets in the area.

Roughly 45 minutes after he ran, the man was taken into custody by officers. He is no longer a threat to the surrounding public.

All closed roads have been reopened.

Initial reports and radio traffic stated the man was also a wanted felon. Police say that appears to be inaccurate.

An investigation into why the man ran is still ongoing.
