A resident pointed out that the man ran into a wooded area nearby, where the man was found and placed under arrest.
During the arrest, the deputy discovered that the license plate on the moped had been switched or altered from another moped and the license tag was from the state of Oregon
The 34 year old Ocean Park man had outstanding warrants, and was taken to the Pacific County Jail where he is being held on 25,000 bail.
