A man who stole a police car and then ran from officers was reportedly half-naked, according to the West Columbia Police Department.

Mark Barlow, 26, now faces multiple charges, including second-degree burglary and breaking into a car, according to police.
The department says police were sent to a burglary in progress and saw the man running through the woods.

Police say Barlow then took a police car after reaching through the window to unlock the car. Investigators say Barlow then crashed the car in a Lexington County parking before crashing it again in Cayce.

Investigators say Barlow was arrested after he got out of the car and ran.
