ROCK HILL — Police on Friday morning chased a wanted Chester County man through woods in Rock Hill when he ran with from officers after grasping onto a gun holster at his side, officials say.
A police sergeant spotted Larry Klutz, 29, of Blackstock walking in front of the Good Kia car dealership on Anderson Road, said Rock Hill police spokesman Mark Bollinger.
The sergeant thought Klutz looked suspicious and got out the car to speak with him. That's when Klutz ran.
Police chased him as he went through woods towards Mount Gallant Road. During the ensuing chase, the suspect threw away his gun.
Officers arrested him near the Habitat for Humanity ReStore and took him into custody. Police were unable to find the weapon, Bollinger said.
Deputies with the York County Sheriff's Office also responded when police sent out a call for mutual aid, he said.
Klutz is wanted by the state Department of Probation and Parole, Bollinger said. Rock Hill Police charged him with possession of crack cocaine after finding drugs on him.
