Man Escapes Arrest And Flees Into Church

A man escapes sheriff's custody in Longview and may have run into a church crowded with children.

Gregg county investigators say they had Blaine Kauffman and another suspect in custody outside the courthouse when Kauffman fled.

Witness say they saw him run inside the Presbyterian church across the street. The children were taken to a secure location while a k-9 searched the church.

Investigators are now looking for 25 year old Blaine Kauffman. He was wanted for violation of probation stemming from a previous felony theft charge.

Call the Gregg county sheriff's department if you have information.
