Nacogdoches Police arrested a man Thursday wanted on Center warrants and for questioning on 14 car burglaries.

Marcus Isaac, 17, of Center, turned himself in to Nacogdoches Police on a Center Police warrant for evading arrest, Nacogdoches Police spokesman Greg Sowell said.

According to Center Police Det. Joey Haley, Isaac saw his picture as a wanted man on KTRE.com and turned himself in.

"He might have actually been involved in more felonies," Haley said. "We've just had a rash of car burglaries and thefts, and all in the same general area."

Haley said Isaac isn't the only person that the Center Police Department is investigating. He said Isaac runs around with a group of about three or four young men, and that Isaac has numerous run-ins with the law, including several juvenile cases.

During the course of the investigation, Haley and his partner found a wooded area with numerous trails in and out of it in the part of Center where the burglaries have been occurring. A search of the wooded area revealed a Mazda car that had the kind of damage that indicated it had been stolen, Haley said. Their hunch was right; the car had been stolen from Nacogdoches.

Another recovered stolen vehicle had been set on fire and burned to its rims, Haley said. The Center PD detective said the series of crimes started in late September and have continued through early November.

When Haley and his partner approached Isaac to bring him in for questioning, Isaac saw them and immediately began walking in the other direction. Haley said Isaac kept going after he told him to stop, and his partner started chasing the 17-year-old. Isaac ran from them, jumped an 8-foot fence, and vanished into a nearby wooded area.

Center Police issued a bulletin for Isaac and said they believed him to be in Nacogdoches.
