LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – A third suspect in what Huntington Police say was a meth lab bust last week has been arrested by Lufkin Police after what they say was a home burglary.

Huntington Police Chief Steven Sifford said he was on his way to serve three warrants to Leland Wayne Randolph, 24, who was arrested by LPD on Sunday after a block-long foot chase.

Randolph is charged by Huntington Police with possession with intent to manufacture, possession of a controlled substance and evading arrest.

Lufkin Police have charged him with burglary of a habitation and evading arrest.

According to Lufkin Police Lt. David Young, officers chased down Randolph following a suspected burglary on the 300 block of Hubbard Street.
