Police arrested a suspect at a south Longview apartment complex after a report of an armed man.
Longview police say a Signal Hill Apartments resident saw a man drive into the complex in a truck and begin wiping the truck. The resident did not recognize the man and went to talk to him and saw he had a gun.
The resident called police. When officers arrived, the suspect ran into the woods carrying a bag. Police arrested him a short time later at a nearby apartment complex.
Police contacted the owner of the truck, who said it was stolen. The owner said he had a pistol in the vehicle. Police were unable to find the gun.
Officials have not released the suspect's name, but say he will be charged with evading arrest, theft of a vehicle.
