Man leads Lexington police on chase, is found hiding under building, authorities say


Lexington police arrested a man who faces numerous criminal charges after they found him Wednesday hiding under a storage outbuilding, authorities said.

Lexington police worked with Charlotte-Mecklenburg police to arrest Alec Dana Foster Jr., whom they believed was in Lexington, Lexington police said.

Lexington police said they located Foster in a car at a gas station on South Talbert Boulevard. When officers approached Foster, he drove away in his vehicle.

Foster crashed his vehicle near Tanyard Street, and he then ran away from officers who pursued him, police said.

The officers then spotted Foster running behind a house near a wooded area, police said. Officers notified neighbors of the potential threat.
