SAN ANTONIO – Four suspects are in San Antonio police custody and facing several charges after they were found recklessly driving a stolen vehicle overnight.

Central patrol officers were called to an apartment complex around 12:18 a.m., Sunday, in the 2000 block of Zarzamora for a report of a hit and run private property accident.

When officers arrived, they found the suspects’ vehicle was leaving the area. Dispatch was notified and a chase was not conducted, according to police.

The vehicle soon pulled into a convenience store parking lot and struck the building, police said. The vehicle fled the scene once more.

Officials said south patrol officers were in the area looking for a possible shooting suspect vehicle, which matched the suspects’ vehicle description.

It was later determined that no shooting had occurred, according to police.

The vehicle sped away from officers and the driver eventually lost control and rolled the vehicle over on a grassy median.

Four suspects were taken into custody, according to officials. A 15-year-old male was charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and possession of narcotics.

A second suspect was found to be active on a felony warrant for aggravated assault of a public servant, according to police.

A third suspect was reported as a runaway/missing person and the fourth suspect was pending positive identification of being charged with failure to identify to a police officer.

The stolen, recovered vehicle was processed and further details are limited at this time.
