ABILENE, Texas -

Abilene police and city marshals spent hours Tuesday trying to track down a 26-year-old man wanted for forgery.

The search for Martin G. Estrada initially led officers to a trailer home in the 100 block of South Pioneer Drive.

At that time, police say Estrada climbed out a small window of the trailer and led authorities on a short foot chase before they lost him.  

Later Tuesday afternoon, on a tip, Estrada was discovered at a different trailer home hiding inside a bathroom.

Estrada is currently in Taylor County Jail, where's he's facing charges of forgery and evading arrest. His bonds total $15,000.
