The Angelina County Sheriff’s Office arrested Taurus Trevion Roberson, 25, of Lufkin, on Thursday on numerous local warrants.

Investigators learned of Roberson’s location at Creekside Apartments. Deputies responded to the scene and spotted Roberson, who allegedly attempted to evade them and jump out of the back window of one of the complex buildings, according to a report on the arrest from Sheriff Greg Sanches. The deputies surrounded the building, and once Roberson realized he was surrounded, he was taken into custody without incident, the report stated.

Roberson had local warrants for his arrest for two counts of burglary of a vehicle, evading arrest with a vehicle, theft of firearm and evading arrest and two warrants out of Smith County for engaging in organized criminal activity and theft of property. He remained in the Angelina County Jail late Thursday with a $9,000 total bond. No bond had been set for his charges of theft of firearm and evading arrest with vehicle.
