Abilene Man Arrested After Attempting to Evade Officers in Stolen Vehicle

Abilene, Texas – On Wednesday, March 1, 2023, at 4:09 p.m. an officer located a person driving in a stolen vehicle in north Abilene.

A male was driving a silver 2012 Dodge Ram Pickup in the 100 block of East Overland Trail. When officers attempted to pull the vehicle over, the driver did not stop and fled north on West Lake Road. He led officers in a low-speed chase until he eventually stopped in the 7400 block of West Lake Road near the Texas State Veteran’s Cemetery. The driver had thrown items out of the vehicle that were later recovered by officers and field-tested positive for illegal drugs.

The suspect, 37-year-old David Cogburn of Abilene, was arrested and transported to the Taylor County Jail. He faces felony charges of evading, possession of illegal narcotics, and tampering with evidence.
