Texarkana, Texas, Police have two felony warrants for Rodney Lindley.

One is for credit card abuse and another one for violating his parole, according to TTPD.

Police have been searching for Lindley all week and thought they had him Thursday afternoon after an officer spotted him driving on Richmond Road. However, Lindley took off at a high rate of speed when the officers tried to stop him. Officers decided to stop the pursuit almost immediately because he was driving too dangerously, and it was not worth the risk of an accident.

The credit card abuse charge is from when a woman had her purse stolen out of her parked car at a business on St. Michael Drive in June. Before she even knew her purse and credit cards had been taken, she started getting alerts on her phone telling her that one of the cards was being used at Central Mall. Lindley had allegedly used the cards several times before she could get them canceled. Detective Warren Smith was able to use surveillance video from these businesses to positively identify Lindley as the suspect who was using the cards.

When Smith started checking on Lindley, he found out that he already had a parole violation warrant. Right after he was released from prison in January, he cut off his ankle monitor and quit reporting to his parole officer, according to TTPD.

Anyone who knows where Lindley is should call TTPD at 903-798-3116 or Texarkana Area Crime Stoppers at 903-793-STOP.
