GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

A Gulfport man is behind bars after he allegedly burglarized storage units and then led police on a vehicle and foot chase on Thursday. Gulfport Police Chief Leonard Papania said Jeffrey Lloyd Holcomb, 41, is charged with two counts of burglary of a storage unit.

Papania said officers responded to a reported burglary at A&A Storage, located at 2525 19th Avenue, shortly after 10:30 a.m. on Thursday. Authorities said they found Holcomb at the scene trying to enter a storage unit by force.

Papania said Holcomb got into his vehicle and led police on a chase that ended near the intersection of Harrison Street and 34th Avenue when he jumped out and fled on foot.

Later in the evening, authorities say they found Holcomb walking in the area of Creosote Road and Arkansas Avenue, and he took off on foot once again. Papania said Holcomb was eventually arrested with the help of a K9 unit.

Holcomb is being held at the Harrison County Jail on a $50,000 bond.
