Authorities arrested three people Thursday after a dramatic chase in Williamson and Milam counties in which the suspects wrecked their car and then stole a pickup truck, according to a press release from the Williamson County sheriff’s office.
The names of the two men and one woman who were arrested have not yet been released.
The precinct 3 constable’s office tried to stop the three people in their vehicle in Jarrell after a witness said the vehicle had been involved in several burglary cases in Williamson County, the press release said. The vehicle would not stop so the constable’s office notified the Williamson County sheriff’s office, the release said.
The sheriff’s office and other agencies began chasing the car around 2:45 p.m. until the vehicle wrecked in the Granger Lake area, the press release said.
It said the people inside the car fled on foot and stole a pickup truck in the area while being pursued by authorities. Law enforcement agencies then chased the stolen truck into Rockdale, the release said. The truck stopped after it ran over tire spikes the Rockdale police put into the roadway, according to the press release.
