Man Escapes Custody After Drug Stop, Is Later Arrested

A man who escaped from police custody now faces many charges after a manhunt comes to an end.

Mineola Police say 32-year-old Lloyd Wayne House II had been arrested following a traffic stop on Highway 69 Wednesday morning.

The charges: possession of drugs and a firearm. But officers say House managed to run away and hours later stole a car from a Mineola home.

DPS tracked that car to Red Springs in Smith County where House was arrested. He'll go before a Wood County judge Thursday.
