A suspect is in custody after leading troopers on a chase Wednesday. 

Texas Department of Public Safety said that troopers tried to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle on northbound Interstate 35 near Amity Road when the suspect sped away. 

The suspect led officials on a chase for five miles before getting off of I-35 and getting out of his car. 

That's when DPS said that the suspect ran, crossing a field and creek before being taken into custody. 

The suspect, unidentified at this time, had a warrant out for his arrest and had suspected drugs on his person. 

He has been taken to the Bell County Jail. No other details were released.
