Man arrested for evading arrest, drugs in vehicle

Police said they found evidence in a white Oldsmobile near the Laurent Towers on Tuesday night. The evidence was found after a man was stopped during a routine traffic stop.

A man who appeared to be in his late 20s was arrested Tuesday night near Laurent Towers.

The man, whose age was not immediately available, was being stopped for a routine traffic stop when he pulled into the Capgemini parking lot, said Victoria Police Office J.W. Stover.

The man parked his vehicle and fled on foot through neighborhoods and was arrested close to a nearby church.

Police uncovered what they thought was crack cocaine in the vehicle, a white Oldsmobile.

The man was arrested on suspicion of evading arrest, resisting arrest and on several drug counts, Stover said.

Ceasar Bonilla lives by where the arrest was made and said he had no idea what was going on.

"All I heard was, 'Get on the ground, stop resisting, get on the ground,'" said Bonilla, 23.
