    Midlothian police are looking for a man who drove a stolen vehicle into four other cars, then ran on foot Thursday morning.

    According to police, someone drove a pickup into a local convenience store, stole cigarettes and took off at about 4 a.m. in Midlothian.

    Soon after, a police officer tried stopping a black Chevrolet pickup that matched the description of the vehicle used in the convenience store robbery. The pickup had been reported stolen in Ellis County at about 10 p.m. Wednesday night, police said.

    The pickup took off, leading police on a chase through the streets of Midlothian. The chase ended on the 600-block of E. Ave F after the truck smashed into four parked cars and wound up on the lawn of one of a home.

    No one was injured.

    The driver fled on foot, leading police on a manhunt through the neighborhood. Ellis County Sheriffs brought in K-9 units to help search, but did not find the man.

    Police say they found a pistol inside the vehicle.

    Police say they have good evidence about the identity of the driver and have called off the search.
