A 39-year-old Killeen man faces felony charges for allegedly evading arrest after wrecking a stolen motorcycle while running from police.

Hector Luis Colon was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke on Monday on a charge of evading arrest with a motor vehicle.

According to an arrest affidavit, a Killeen police officer attempted to run the license plates of a motorcycle traveling eastbound in the 400 block of Rancier Avenue around 11:30 p.m. Sunday. When the officer attempted to catch up to the motorcycle, Colon sped up and ran through a stop sign.

The officer activated his lights to make a traffic stop, but Colon continued to evade the officer, committing several traffic violations until he wrecked the motorcycle just east of the Willow Springs overpass, according to the affidavit.

The officer found a motorcycle license plate folded up in Colon’s pocket and determined the bike was reported stolen in Harker Heights. Once at the Killeen Jail, Colon identified himself as a 20-year-old man and used a different name, but “his age did not match his physical appearance,” the affidavit stated. After he was fingerprinted, police determined he was Colon and matched him with a photo from a previous arrest.

Colon’s bond was set at $20,000.

In an unrelated case, Shauneque Lashell Turner, 31, was arraigned by Cooke on a felony charge of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. The arrest affidavit stated that Turner was arrested Sunday when a police officer saw the vehicle in the 900 block of West Rancier Avenue. Turner told the officer an acquaintance let her borrow the car for $20 “and some crack cocaine.” Her bail was set at $20,000.
