A Cynthiana man was jailed Saturday morning after an attempt to get away from police.
James Anthony Lewis, 30, was being sought for questioning in a Friday night purse theft at Shiloh Blue on Walnut Street. Sgt. Wilbur Gross approached Lewis, who allegedly ran out the back door and was tased.
He was wanted on four warrants as well as the resisting arrest charge that Gross initiated.
Gross said the purse was recovered as well as some of the money inside the purse.
The investigation remains open, Gross said, as people are still being questioned.
