The officer in Hastings responded Friday to an alarm at a restaurant and saw a man running from the area. The officer lost the man but soon found him in the leaf pile.

Police said the man then ran and jumped into a river. He was caught after apparently changing clothes at a motel. Police found a backpack belonging to the man with waste from methamphetamine making inside the backpack and said he likely was making meth in the motel room.

The man was held on a probation violation. He was expected to face drug charges.
