A 54-year-old Nacogdoches man allegedly fled into the woods behind his home on Highway 259 Tuesday evening after sheriff's deputies arrived to execute a search warrant in connection to an ongoing investigation concerning the manufacture and delivery of methamphetamine.

After a "detailed search of the area," Nacogdoches County Sheriff's deputies arrested Marcus Dan Burdette a short time later.

Burdette is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a state-jail felony criminal mischief charge, a second-degree felony charge of possession of a controlled substance less than or equal to four grams, and a Class A misdemeanor charge of evading arrest or detention.

The NCSO deputies arrived to execute the search warrant at Burdette's home in the 14000 block of Highway 259 around 6 p.m. Tuesday. When they got there, they spotted Burdette in his back yard. Not too long after that, he fled on foot into the wooded area behind his house.

During a search of the property, the NCSO deputies found two clear plastic bags containing methamphetamine.
