WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A man Black Hawk County Sheriff's deputies believe was involved in a chase last week, was arrested on Tuesday morning.

On August 9, a Black Hawk County deputy saw a vehicle they believe was stolen two days earlier in Waterloo, run a stop sign at the intersection of Dubuque and Osage Roads.

When the deputy tried to stop the vehicle, the driver refused to stop and took off at a high rate of speed.  After a short chase, the vehicle crashed into a pole at Franklin and Nevada Streets in Waterloo.  The driver ran and was not found.

An off duty deputy working security at Crossroads Shopping Center checked surveillance tapes and saw a person suspected of stealing from one of the stores in the mall, get into the same vehicle the other deputy chased on August 9.

Deputies identified the driver as Javonta Juan Herbert, 18, of Waterloo.

Herbert was arrested on Tuesday morning.  He's charged with eluding, interference without injury, driving while license suspended, speeding, failure to obey a stop sign and failure to maintain control.
