BRYAN, Tex (KBTX) - One person has been arrested and another is still on the run after authorities chased the pair overnight across the Brazos Valley.

Colton Regmund, 26, was taken into custody early Friday morning.

The Sheriff's office tells us they were investigating thefts of car batteries off FM 50 and Hwy 20 and were alerted at around 4:00 a.m. when a decoy battery was taken.

During a chase that went into Burleson County, then back into Brazos County, deputies say several batteries were thrown out of the bed of the truck, including the decoy.

The chase ended at around 5:00 a.m. on Traditions Drive in Bryan when the driver jumped out of the moving truck and ran away. A deputy saw Regmund still inside as the truck continued to roll and stopped it with his patrol vehicle.

Regmund was arrested for theft of property and burglary of a building.

The search for the truck's driver was briefly called off due to storms moving through the area.
