A 20-year-old Pueblo man is arrested after leading police on a chase through several yards on Thursday.

Evan Hefty is facing charges of burglary and motor vehicle theft in connection to a stolen truck out of Pueblo West. The truck was found in the 1000 block of E. Evans Ave. after being reported stolen on Monday. Detectives found it parked and unoccupied at about 10:30 a.m.

Shortly after that a man and woman walked out of the alley heading toward the truck with a duffel bag. Police said they recognized Hefty, who they knew was also wanted on several warrants, including felony escape.

He took off running and jumped the fences into several yards before being caught near the intersection of Summit Ave. and Pine St. Police said the keys to the truck were found in his pocket and inside the truck was mail that was reported stolen from the Pueblo West area.

Hefty also faces charges in both the city and Pueblo County on unrelated incidents still under investigation. Detectives with the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office, FBI Safe Streets and Pueblo Police assisted with the arrest. 

The woman who was with him at the time was not arrested.
