NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Nacogdoches police lost their suspect during a theft investigation Saturday afternoon. They were called out to the South St. Brookshire Brothers after getting reports of a beer thief.

When they made contact with the suspect, he gave them a fake name and birthday, but soon officers identified him as Blake Ferguson, 18 of Lufkin.

After being handcuffed, and placed into a patrol car, Ferguson escaped from the backseat, leading police on a foot chase.

He was caught minutes later, and is now charged with theft, false identification and escape while being arrested.
