NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, Texas (KTRE) - A Nacogdoches man was arrested Monday evening after authorities say he stole a neighbor's vehicle and wrecked it shortly thereafter.

According to Nacogdoches County Sheriff Thomas Kerss, Kevin Eugene Meek, 32, went to his neighbor's home on County Road 822 and stole their 2009 Ford F-150, Kerss said. He drove it from the residence and immediately wrecked it on County Road 823, according to Kerss.

Kerss said Meek ran from the scene but a deputy arrested him shortly later at Meek's mother's residence.

He was booked into the Nacogdoches County Jail on a charge of unauthorized use and criminal trespass, as he had been warned not to come on the property on an earlier date.
