3 in custody, 1 on the run after chase through South Bexar County

Suspects were in a car stolen from Atascosa County

SAN ANTONIO – Bexar County Sheriff’s Office deputies are looking for one man who managed to run away from them after a car chase involving a stolen car.

Deputies said they caught three other men who were in the vehicle soon after the chase ended early Tuesday morning.

They say the incident began after a deputy spotted a car that looked suspicious outside a convenience store near Highway 281 South and Loop 1604.

The suspect sped away when he noticed the deputy, causing the deputy to chase him, they said.

The chase went on for at least 20 minutes, headed toward the Atascosa County line and back, and at times reached speeds of up to 105 miles per hour.

At one point, the suspects also drove in the wrong direction on the highway.

The car ultimately came to a stop in a grassy field off Big Oak Drive, west of Highway 281 South.

Deputies took three of the suspects into custody.

They say the car had been reported stolen out of Atascosa County.
