EDMOND, Okla. - A porch pirate who allegedly targeted a metro home went on a wild crime spree and was found in Texas.

Lloyd Tillman, 38, started in Edmond, making the adventure to Texas. A more than a 200-mile trip for the alleged thief.

"They were trying to make contact with him and to take him into custody. And he took a vehicle, rammed one of their cars and tried to run over two other officers," said Jenny Wagnon, Edmond PD spokesperson.

On Monday, Garvin County investigated a case of arson, where the suspect, later found to be Tillman, allegedly burglarized a business.

He allegedly stole office equipment and checks, then set the building on fire.

Police say he then fled to Ardmore where he cashed those checks which police say were worth thousands of dollars.

"I think total, all said and done, it's been five high-speed pursuits with different agencies from here all the way to Texas," Wagnon said.

On Wednesday, police said Tillman allegedly tried again to cash another forged check at a store in Greenville, Texas, but his luck had run out.

"He bailed out of that vehicle and ran, I believe at that point they brought in some K9 units and that's how he was captured," Wagnon said.

Tillman may be locked up in Texas, but he's also facing charges in Oklahoma.

"We actually have a separate case than this that we believe he's our primary suspect in. Stealing mail out of a mailbox and using a check. So, we have three felony charges that we''ll be presenting on him that's just our agency," Wagnon said.

Wagnon said stealing mail wasn't his only alleged crime in the metro.

"He was using a stolen credit card to rent a motel room on I-35 and so we were able to try to get information there," she said.

Tillman is currently in custody in the Hunt County Jail. He will likely face charges in several counties.
