ODESSA - An Austin man on the run was stopped dead in his tracks in Odessa.

We're told 34-year-old James Grimes ran away from an Austin halfway house back in February and had been missing ever since.

The Marshal's Office and several other law enforcement agencies received word that Grimes used to live in Odessa and might be back in town.

When officials found him at the Sunchase Apartments, Grimes took off running but was eventually caught.
