A driver pulled into an apartment complex parking lot in the 1800 block of Teasley Lane and fled his vehicle on foot after a Denton police officer initiated a traffic stop early Friday morning, according to a Denton police report.

The officer pursued on foot but lost sight of the driver.

Police said a perimeter was established and a K-9 was called to the scene to attempt to track the suspect, but he was never found. 

During a search of the vehicle, the K-9 and officers found what they believe to be several grams of methamphetamine, a pipe, a butane lighter and an electronic scale, reports indicate.
