A 26-year-old man was arrested Thursday after allegedly running from police in South Eugene, according to a press release from Eugene Police.
Just before noon, Oct. 26, officers were in the vicinity of Potter St. and Amazon Dr. when they saw a man inside a vehicle known to have been stolen.
Officers attempted to contact the man, identified as Michael Stuart Fancher, 26, but he allegedly ran away on foot.
As police were attempting to locate Fancher, two nearby schools, Ridgeline Montessori and Charlemagne Elementary, were placed on lockdown.
Officers located Fancher the residence of a person acquainted with him on E. 41st Ave., and arrested him on charges of eluding police by foot and unauthorized use of a vehicle.
Police say Fancher may face additional charges in connection to this incident.
