BROOKLYN, CT (WFSB) -

A man wanted for fleeing into the woods following a prior crime tried to do so again this week.

State police said they tried to stop a vehicle driven by Luparis Cameron, 26, of Danielson, on Thursday.

They said the vehicle was registered to a known associate of Cameron.

Troopers found the driver traveling on South Main Street in Brooklyn.

An active arrest warrant was out on Cameron from an incident on Nov. 1 where he fled into the woods behind the Brooklyn Xtra Mart. Details about that incident were not made available.

When the vehicle was stopped on Thursday, troopers said the driver fled into a driveway of a commercial business.

That's when Cameron, whom state police realized had been driving, fled into woods again behind the business.

However, state police said they were able to quickly find him and take him into custody.

He was charged with operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license and interfering with an officer.

Troopers said his bond was set at $2,500 and he was given a court date of Dec. 16.
