Several law enforcement agencies are looking for an armed and dangerous man in Rusk County. 

Police say he is Lyle Lee, a known criminal with a lenthy rap sheet. 

It started on County Road 2144, just outside of the City of Troup, when a stolen vehicle was spotted. A chase ensued and ended on an oil lease road. 

Lee reportedly got out of the vehicle, and ran into the woods. Law enforcement recovered the stolen vehicle, a tan-colored Toyota Tacoma, with a yellow ATV in the back. 

Police say he then stole a 2018 maroon Dodge truck, an AR-15, and a handgun. The truck was abandoned in Rusk County. 

If you know where Lee is, or see him, contact law enforcement right away.
