LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A Lufkin man was taken to jail after police say he fled Wal-Mart with stolen merchandise.

Just before 11 P.M. Saturday night, a LPD officer was flagged down by store security and an employee in the parking lot.

The report states they pointed out Demedric Taylor.  They believed he had taken items from the store, and was trying to get away.

Taylor allegedly ignored the officer's orders for him to stop, and kept walking. According to police, he pulled away and ran when the officer tried to take him into custody.

Another officer joined the chase, caught up with him, but police say he kept struggling to get away. The officers eventually got him handcuffed.

The report says stolen items including beer, printer ink, boxers, and a package of T-shirts were on found on him.

Taylor is charged with evading arrest, resisting arrest, and felony theft.  The theft charge was enhanced because of previous convictions for theft.
