A Talladega man was arrested Thursday and is being held on felony warrants issued through the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department, according to Talladega Police Chief Jason Busby.

David Rush Freeman, 23, was arrested after officers responded to a possible burglary call on Shady Lane at about 5:30 a.m. There was no entrance made to the house, but witnesses did see a white male running away from the house and police soon followed. Officers eventually made contact with Freeman and arrested him for attempting to elude police, Busby said. Bond in that case was set at $1,000. As of Thursday afternoon, he had not been charged with attempted burglary.

Freeman has warrants from Shelby County for theft of property in the second degree and three counts of fraudulent use of a credit or debit card. Bond in these cases was set at $10,000 each.

Details of these allegations were unavailable Thursday, but Alabama law defines theft in the second degree as theft of $500 to $2,500, a credit or debit card, a gun, a controlled substance or livestock. Both theft of property in the second degree and fraudulent use of a credit or debit card are class C felonies, punishable upon conviction by one year and one day to 10 years in prison.

Attempting to elude a police officer is a misdemeanor.
