Police Capture Man Who Has a History of Running from the Law

by Ramonica R. Jones

Diboll police have caught a man who has been on the run for several weeks after leading them on a chase. Twenty-eight year-old Daniel Harkins was found hiding out in Hudson at his ex-wife's home.

Harkins is facing several charges in Polk and Nacogdoches counties. He's also charged with evading arrest and drug possession in Angelina County. Detectives said Harkins had meth on him when they caught him.

Police don't plan to charge his ex-wife because they said she had no idea her ex-husband was a wanted man.

An officer tried to approach Harkins at a store in Diboll last month because he was riding a four-wheeler on a paved road. Police chased him for eight miles before he disappeared into a wooded area.
