Blotter: Burglary suspect fails to evade police

A 23-year-old man tried to hide from police after breaking into Keno’s Express at nearly 6 a.m. Friday, a police report said, but was soon busted.

Officers arrived to the 700 block of Hercules Lane and found the man still at the scene. The man fled on foot, turned a corner and dove into a flower bed. But he was soon discovered and apprehended, the report said.

The man was arrested and charged with burglary of the convenience store after officers spoke to witnesses and reviewed surveillance video.

He also had an outstanding warrant out of Dallas County for possession of a controlled substance.
