FRANKSTON, Texas (KLTV) - A manhunt is no longer active for a man who fled a Frankston traffic stop, but law enforcement are still watching for the suspect.

The search was launched after a man fled from a traffic stop on Wednesday night.

Coffee City Police Chief Johnjay Portillo said that a Frankston police officer attempted a traffic stop on a vehicle on Hwy 155. When the officer ran the driver’s information, she found he was a wanted felon. When she attempted to handcuff him, he resisted and fled on foot.

A perimeter was set up in the Lollipop Landing area along Hwy 155. They said the suspect was a black male in his 30s wearing dark clothing.

Coffee City police ask anyone who hears or sees anything unusual to call 911. They recommended residents keep their doors locked until the man is in custody.

Frankston Police were assisted by Coffee City Police and Texas DPS in the search.
