KERRVILLE, Texas – A man faces a slew of charges after days of evading authorities, the Kerr County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday.

William Curtis Roberts has been arrested, ending a “prolonged week-long spree of evading arrest, vehicle and property theft, and drug offenses, among other possible crimes still under investigation,” deputies said in a news release.

The arrest took place in Kerr County. Roberts will face counts by the Sheriff’s Office, Kimble County and Kerrville Police, with more to come, authorities said.

Since June 2, Roberts is accused of evading arrest using a vehicle or on foot (three times), burglary, the unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, criminal trespassing and possession of a controlled substance, deputies said.

An additional criminal mischief charge has been entered for an offense earlier this spring, the news release added. Roberts also admitted to stealing catalytic converters in the Center Point area, investigators said.

Roberts has been booked into the Kerr County Jail. Bond has not been set.

“Catching this fugitive from justice was a nonstop and integrated regional effort,” Kerr County sheriff’s officials said. “We thank our law enforcement partners from the Texas Rangers, DPS Criminal Investigation Division, DPS Aircraft Division, Junction Police Department, Kimble County Sheriff’s Office, Kerrville Police Department, and US Secret Service for their cooperative efforts.”
