A Parkersburg man is arrested after police say he led them on a chase in a stolen car.

State police say 26-year-old Evan Tingler stole a 1999 Grand Marquis last Thursday in Parkersburg.

Then Tuesday morning, just after midnight, troopers found him driving along Route 47.

There was a short chase, taking officers to Cedar Grove Road, where they say Tingler got out of the car and took off into the woods.

A police dog later found Tingler hiding under a truck near WVUP.

He was arraigned Tuesday morning and is now in the regional jail in Doddridge County on $150,000 bond.
