When the deputies activated their emergency vehicle lights, the silver Jeep Liberty fled. Deputies gave chase as the vehicle pulled behind a shopping center at FM 1488 and FM 2978. The male and female vehicle occupants fled, on foot, to a residence located at 39222 Westwood Square East. Acting quickly, SWAT, in conjunction with K-9, were able to confirm the male subject was inside the residence. Meanwhile, the female was taken into custody as she stood in the driveway.
Due to the suspect’s unknown relationship to any of the potential occupants of the residence and a fear that innocent people could be harmed, SWAT made forced entry taking the suspect safely into custody without further incident.
