A car chase that blew through Grimes County ended in north-west Houston Thursday afternoon August 25th, with the driver and two others in custody.
The College Station Police Department reports, officers responded to a suspicious persons call after a resident told police, an unknown man knocked on her door and asked for a person who did not live there. And after being told he had the wrong address, the resident said, the man got into a vehicle and drove away.
Police say the person found this all quite suspicious and called the PD with a description of the vehicle and its license plate.
The vehicle was located shortly thereafter still in the neighborhood, and attempted a traffic stop, but instead of pulling over, officials say it peeled out in attempt to elude police.
CSPD Officers chased the vehicle south on highway six but were called off after the Grimes County Sheriff’s Department and Department of Public Safety State Troopers took up the chase.
And after taking law enforcement through many small towns, officials continue, the chase was concluded near Jersey Village after the occupants ditched the car and fled by foot but caught soon after.
The College Station PD says it is in charge of the investigation and believes the men captured are linked to previous home burglaries in College Station and Brazos County. And they are asking anyone with information regarding the incident to call at 979-764-3600.
