Authorities are searching for a man in the Lower Valley who led them on a chase Wednesday.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, troopers were pursuing a man driving a white pickup truck who fled from a traffic stop on Alameda Avenue and Old Pueblo Road.

The pursuit ended on Clavel Drive near Pendale Drive when the man, later identified as Guillermo Moreno, left the vehicle and fled on foot, authorities said.

Moreno, 50, was driving a white Mitsubishi pickup truck, officials said.

Troopers are searching for the man and a helicopter was seen circling the area.

Moreno faces charges of evading arrest in a motor vehicle and evading arrest on foot.

Neighbors told CBS4 the man crashed his vehicle into a concrete mailbox, but authorities said the man didn’t cause the property damage and the debris later found on the street apparently fell out of the truck.

This incident marks the third DPS-related pursuit in El Paso so far this year.
