A Williamsport man is accused of stealing a police cruiser in Lycoming County.

Police say 51-year-old Anthony Perez was driving a stolen truck Friday and led officers on a chase through Old Lycoming Township.

They say he jumped out of his truck and ran around a mobile home at Carlton Terrace.

An officer got out of his cruiser, chasing him and that's when perez managed to steal the squad car.

Police found Perez in Williamsport after an intense manhunt and arrested him.

He's locked up this morning in Lycoming County Prison.
