KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A Knoxville man wanted on charges of burglary after allegedly breaking into the Fort Loudon Waste and Recycling property has been arrested.

According to court documents, when an officer arrived at the scene of the burglary call on Sunday, he found a hole cut in the property's fence. When the officer entered the yard, he reportedly saw Jason Daniel Wright rifling through a dumpster.

The officer reported that he told Wright not to make any quick movements and show his hands, then Wright ran and jumped over the fence and across the train tracks.

The report says the officer chased Wright and witnessed him stealing a
bicycle from a North Knoxville home on Metler Street. The officer said he continued to run through backyards to evade arrest and police were unable to locate him.

However, according to Knox County Sheriff Office, Wright is currently in custody.
