SOMERVILLE - The manhunt for a suspect, wanted on felony charges in Alabama, is over.

Adam Nyman, 20, from Caldwell, was found about 3:35 p.m. hiding under a bridge on CR 415. He was arrested on the outstanding warrant in Alabama for possession of stolen property.

The manhunt began at 2:40 Sunday afternoon when a State Trooper in Washington County tried to pull over a vehicle believed to be stolen. Nyman took off, eventually ditching the car at the Handy Stop on Highway 36 in Somerville.

Law enforcement officers searched throughout the night.

Monday morning, Nyman was spotted when he ran across Highway 36 and into a wooded area. Police believe he spent the night in an abandoned structure near the Koppers Plant on the north side of Somerville.

The search area included Somerville, the Apache Hills subdivision and CR 416 in Burleson County.

The Sheriff's Office brought in a search dog from Brenham. A DPS chopper was also dispatched from Austin.

Trooper Jimmy Morgan says it’s possible Nyman could face charges in multiple counties here in Texas, as well as the Alabama warrant. He’s suspected of breaking into a home in Washington County before the manhunt began.

Somerville residents were placed under lockdown during the manhunt. The Sheriff's Office called residents, telling them to lock their doors and stay inside. The lockdown has since been lifted.
