Youngsville police arrested a Houston man in connection with a theft at the AT&T store on Chemin Metairie Road that ended with a car chase.

Ladarren Williams, 20, was booked with felony theft, aggravated flight from an officer, running a stop sign, reckless operation and speeding. His bond on the theft and flight charges has been set at $22,500 but he has no bond for the remaining charges, records show.
