SAN ANTONIO - San Antonio police arrested two people following a chase involving a stolen vehicle that began on the city's West Side and ended several miles away in an H-E-B parking lot.

Police said they were notified by OnStar, an in-vehicle safety and security system, which helped them track the stolen vehicle from the 120 block of Kenley Place to the H-E-B located in the 18100 block of San Pedro Avenue, which is near Loop 1604 and Highway 281.

A man, 23, and a woman, 25, were found around 2:20 a.m. in the vehicle and, once officers with the San Antonio Police Department pulled up, the man took off, dropping a gun in the process of evading arrest, police said.

The man was eventually taken into custody after instigating a fight with SAPD officers and attempting to pull a knife out, police said.

Upon searching the man, police said he was found in possession of meth, marijuana, needles and tattoo equipment.

Police said investigators are still working at the scene and are trying to determine why the two suspects drove to the H-E-B location. 

They said the unidentified woman, who was the driver of the stolen vehicle, was taken into custody. The unidentified man was taken to Methodist Stone Oak Hospital for treatment of low blood pressure.
