A man is in custody after a short foot chase this morning. Greenwood Police responded to a call near the Index-Journal offices where a man stated that his truck had been stolen from the parking lot. Officers immediately broadcast a description of the truck over the radio; a sheriff's deputy advised that he had just seen a truck matching the description headed toward S. Main St.
When a city police officer got behind the truck on S. Main St, the driver pulled into the Coin Laundry at 1138 S. Main St. and fled on foot. Officers were able to capture the suspect in the parking lot of the McDonald's. The vehicle was photographed and returned to the rightful owner undamaged.
Andrei Carroll Morris, 28, of 219 Taggart Avenue was arrested and charged with Grand Larceny, Failure to Stop on Lawful Command, and Driving Under Suspension.
