Just after 8 pm a Montgomery County Deputy stopped a vehicle on I-69 at Antique in front of the New Caney Post Office. The driver of the vehicle fled on foot as the vehicle came to a stop. It was learned the vehicle was a stolen vehicle from Houston. Multiple agencies converged on the area. A short time later a DPS Trooper spotted the suspect in the wooded area on Antique and Loop 494. The suspect ducked back into the heavily wooded area. A Montgomery County Deputy decided to go into the mulch yard near the intersection and wait. Within minutes Akeem M. Smith almost ran into him. He was arrested for evading arrest detention and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. As deputies inventoried the vehicle a handgun was found which was found to have also been stolen in Houston. A charge of theft of a firearm was added. The only form of identification Smith had was a work visa.
