BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - A man accused of stealing several vehicles in Mississippi and leading officers on a chase has been arrested.

News outlets report 38-year-old Lowrey Roland Webster IV was arrested Tuesday and charged with two counts of carjacking and felony eluding.

Webster is accused of stealing and abandoning a seafood truck. Authorities say Webster then forced an elderly couple from a Chrysler 300 and fled. Officers spotted him in the Chrysler and a chase ensued.

Biloxi police Maj. Jim Adamo says Webster hit spikes that were placed on Interstate 110 and later abandoned the vehicle.

Webster was apprehended by a K-9 unit and taken to a local hospital. His condition is unknown.

It’s unclear if Webster has a lawyer.
