Update: The man was arrested Tuesday afternoon at a home in Olympia on a felony warrant from the state’s Department of Corrections. Washington State Patrol spokesman Kyle Moore said a state worker recognized the man based on the description given and told troopers where to find him.
Washington State Patrol troopers are looking for a man who fled from his vehicle at Marathon Park in Olympia on Tuesday morning, a spokesman said.
About 5 a.m., a trooper went to check on a van parked in the lot. The park closes at 7 p.m. and reopens at 7 a.m. during the winter.
But as the trooper approached the van, a man jumped out and ran from the park toward the Capitol Campus powerhouse, spokesman Kyle Moore said.
Never miss a local story.
Troopers and officers from Olympia Police Department searched but did not find him.
The man is described as white, 5 feet 10 inches tall and was last seen wearing a black sweatshirt, black sweatpants and a cap.
