Houston crime: Suspected robbers lead police on 30-minute chase before pulling over on Chrisman Road

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — Houston police say they attempted several pit maneuvers to stop a pickup truck in a 30-minute chase, but in this case those tricks didn’t work on the suspected thieves.

The chase began near Little York Road and Shady Lane. It ended around 1:40 a.m. Saturday at Chrisman and Aldine Mail Road in northern Harris County.

Police said the pursuit began because the truck was reported stolen from Conroe and was allegedly used in multiple robberies.

During the chase, video shows officers trying to ram the pickup multiple times to bring it to a stop. This is called a pit manoeuvre. It did not work.

“They tried several pit maneuvers during the car chase. The truck was very heavy. There was a lot of stuff in the back of the truck, so it didn’t work,” Lt. R. Willkens said.

Officers said the driver ran after coming to a stop but was caught behind a trailer.

Three people, including a woman, have been taken into custody, police said.

Police said they were looking into whether the suspects shot anyone around I-45 and Little York before the chase began.

No one was injured in the chase.
