A man who bragged about stealing a Euless patrol car and getting away from authorities last week was arrested Monday in Fort Worth after a brief foot pursuit, police said.
Through tips and the investigation, Euless police learned that Raymond Fisk, 34, was at a hotel in the 3800 block of Tanacross Drive in Fort Worth Monday morning.
At about 11 a.m. Monday, Fisk and two other people were seen loading luggage into a vehicle in the hotel parking lot, Euless police said Monday.
When he saw officers approach him, Fisk ran from the scene, but he was arrested a short time later. The other two people were also taken into custody on related and unrelated charges.
Fisk was in the Euless City Jail Monday.
Before he was arrested, a caller told a Euless dispatcher that he overheard Fisk bragging that he was wanted for stealing the patrol unit.
Euless patrol officers had tried to arrest Fisk early Wednesday on a drug charge. Fisk struggled with officers, ran away from them, got inside the white 2012 Euless patrol sports utility vehicle and drove off, police Capt. Gary Landers said in a news release.
He was last seen driving on a service road of Texas 183 near Ector Drive in Euless, police said.
Officers searching Northeast Tarrant County and east Fort Worth found the patrol unit about 5:15 a.m. Wednesday at Trinity and American boulevards in Fort Worth.
Fisk was considered armed and dangerous.
He has a criminal history in Tarrant County. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison in 2004 for an aggravated robbery in Fort Worth, according to Tarrant County criminal court records, and was sentenced to four years in 2000 for robbery and theft of a vehicle in Fort Worth.
Fisk has a June 24 hearing on three charges — assault on a public servant, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon and possession of a controlled substance — out of Arlington, records show.
