A man who led authorities on a motorcycle pursuit, crashed, and then tried to get rid of a gun while running away, is now locked up behind bars.
Wichita Falls Police said an officer tried to stop Justin Travis Wayne Heard Monday night around 9:00p.m. The 22-year-old sped away and then lost control of his motorcycle on the 3200 Block of Maurine Street. Beard continued to run and then threw a semi-automatic pistol on the roof of a building.
Police believe the motorcycle was stolen because the license plate had numbers taped over it.
When heard was finally caught, police also found meth on him.
