Louisiana man runs from police at Petro Truck Stop

Ivory Carl Myles

On Friday, July 21, at 2:21 p.m., Beaumont police received a call from the U.S. Marshal’s Office in reference to attempting to locate a suspect that was believed to be near Walden and I-10.

The suspect, identified as Ivory Carl Myles, a 28-year-old Nachitoches, Louisiana man, had an NCIC (National Crime Information Center) warrant for armed robbery and aggravated kidnapping out of Louisiana. Myles is also suspected of committing an aggravated sexual assault. U.S. Marshalls advised that Myles was considered armed and dangerous.

Beaumont police located the suspect vehicle at the Petro Truck Stop at Walden and I-10. When officers approached the area, Myles fled from officers on the I-10 service road westbound. Myles then lost control of his vehicle and wrecked near Major Drive and I-10.

Due to the violent nature of the crimes Myles committed and the fact that he did not immediately comply with officers commands to exit the vehicle, extreme caution was used when taking him into custody. A handgun was located inside Myles’ vehicle.

Detectives are working with Louisiana authorities as well as the U.S. Marshal’s Office on this investigation.
