A burglary suspect wanted by multiple East Texas police agencies and sheriff's offices is behind bars.

Officers with the U.S. Marshal's Joint East Texas Fugitive Task Force and the Henderson County Sheriff's Department located Timothy David Himes Jr, 41, of Larue Thursday at a residence in Larue. 

Law enforcement officers said Himes evaded arrest, resisted arrest and escaped from custody, but was captured and booked into the Henderson County Jail.

Tyler police were able to identify Himes in August when he was caught on surveillance video cashing stolen checks, using stolen credit cards and pawning stolen property.

Himes was wanted by the Tyler, Athens, Canton and Lindale police departments and the Smith and Henderson County sheriff's offices, according to police. 

He was charged with escape from custody, resisting arrest, evading arrest or detention, three counts of credit card or debit card abuse of the elderly, fraudulent use or possession of less than five items of identifying information of the elderly and burglary of a habitation, according to Henderson County jail records. 

Himes is being held on bonds totaling $577,000, according to jail records. Many other warrants are pending through several other agencies, according to Tyler Police.
