DENHAM SPRINGS - Police have arrested a man Tuesday who allegedly fled from police after he committed numerous burglaries in Livingston Parish.

According to the Denham Springs Police Department, officers were investigating reports of a man with a flashlight looking into vehicles around Jason Drive Monday night. When officers spotted the suspect, Thomas Warner, he immediately began to flee inside his vehicle.

Warner then got into a wreck near the intersection of Hatchell Lane and Florida Boulevard. He fled the scene of the crash but was soon taken into custody by police.
