The Hallettsville Police Department spent Tuesday morning searching for and finally arresting a Gonzales man on several warrants.
Police arrested Oscar Robert Garcia, 27, at 4 p.m. Tuesday in the 800 block of Donna Drive on warrants charging evading arrest, evading arrest with a vehicle and escaping while being arrested, said Hallettsville Police Officer Saul Rangel.
Some residents mistook the morning response as a jail escape because of helicopters, dogs and patrol units scouting the area.
The escape charge stems from a May incident.
He was seen by an officer Tuesday morning.
Garcia remained in the Lavaca County jail on Tuesday night.
