A Lubbock man is behind bars after leading Lubbock Police on a chase through central Lubbock.

Lee Ernest Martinez faces a number of charges including burglary, theft, evading arrest with a vehicle, possession, unauthorized use of a vehicle and criminal trespass.

These charges come after the 30-year-old broke into a home in the 6100 block of 78th street Saturday afternoon.

Police later spotted Martinez driving a silver Jetta stolen from the home.

This began a chase that zig-zagged across central Lubbock for 20 minutes.

When the car got a flat tire in the middle of 36th and University, Martinez decided to desert the car and run.

But he didn't get far; police arrested him at 2416 36th.

He remains in the Lubbock County Jail.
