Police Release the Identity of a Serial Evader

It turns out an East Texas man who led police on a chase through Diboll a couple weeks ago has a history of running from the law.

Police believe Daniel Harkins may be hiding out in Corrigan with his girlfriend. The 28-year-old is wanted in several counties for multiple felony charges. Now, he also has an evading arrest warrant out of Diboll.

Tips started pouring in to the Diboll Police Department after the East Texas News aired surveillance video taken at the Polk's convenience store in Diboll just minutes before the pursuit started.

An officer tried to approach Harkins after he left the store because he was riding a four-wheeler on a paved road. Police chased Harkins for eight miles along FM 2497 to Peavy Switch Road. He disappeared into a wooded area.

If you know where Harkins is, call the Diboll Police Department at (936) 829-5586 or Lufkin Crime Stoppers at (936) 639-TIPS.
