Two suspects were standing by boxes when one officer shined his flashlight, police said.

One suspect ran southbound between the trains, the other ran northbound towards MPD.

The suspect, later identified as Corderion Harris, that ran southbound, later hid in a wooded drainage area, court documents reported.

MPD later found Harris and arrested him.

As Harris was being arrested he said, “Y’all don’t give up do you?”, according to an affidavit.
