Deserter Caught In Longview

A traffic stop in Longview turns into a chase, and then, the discovery of a U.S. Navy deserter. As police stopped a vehicle on 13th street this morning, they found a passenger had a federal warrant for his arrest for deserting his duties with the United States navy.

Police chased the suspect on foot for 10 blocks before capturing him in a resident's backyard. The sailor's name has not been released. Police tell us he's scheduled to be arraigned tomorrow.
