    Investigators say Brooks was staying at the nearby Mesquite Inn, just west of the current search area, before he fled into the apartment complex.

    Police requested K-9 units and assistance from the Mesquite police department. FBI agents also went to the apartment complex to search for the suspect.

    K-9 units were on the scene for about an hour and a half. During that time, the dog led police outside the complex to a nearby creek bed, then into an area filled with trees.

     

    The FBI arrested a man who caused a Dallas apartment complex to be locked down for several hours Tuesday after he fled when authorities tried to serve a drug warrant.

    A bureau spokesman said 41-year-old Ronald William Brooks was apprehended in the Dallas suburb of Mesquite without injury Tuesday night.
