A College Station man has been arrested after running from investigators trying to serve a felony warrant for his arrest.
According to the Brazos County Sheriff's Office, Cory James Middleton, 24, was wanted for evading arrest out of Madison County.
Around 5 p.m. Monday, Brazos County deputies tried to arrest Middleton at a home on Andert Road and Highway 21 in Wixon Valley, but he fled before they arrived.
Multiple agencies, including a Bryan Police K-9 unit, searched the area. A Department of Public Safety helicopter searched from above.
A reverse 9-1-1 call was sent out to residents in the area asking them to stay inside and report anything suspicious.
The search was called off around 8 p.m.
Madison County Sheriff Travis Neeley says Middleton is suspected of leading deputies on a high speed pursuit last week near North Zulch.
A deputy ended up crashing his patrol car into a tree.
Investigators say Middleton was transporting more than $35,000 in stolen property.
