Helotes police searching for suspects after vehicle chase

Suspects fled after crashing vehicle into parked cars, tree

HELOTES, Texas – Helotes police are searching for suspects they say stole tractor supplies and then led officers on a chase overnight.

The chase began around 1:10 a.m. on Loop 1604 on the city's Northwest Side.

Officers were first led through Culebra Road before the pickup truck exited Military Drive. The vehicle then went down Highway 151 to Potranco Road.

The chase eventually led officers to Westover Brook near Barrel Point. That's when, police said, the suspects jumped out of the vehicle and ran on foot after hitting two parked cars and a tree.

Both the Eagle helicopoter and K-9 units assisted in the search.

Police said they believed the vehicle to be stolen.

The investigation is ongoing.
