Travis County deputies are looking for a man they believe was involved in a series of robberies across the Austin area in recent days.
Alfonso Miguel Chapa, 28, is considered armed and dangerous, said Capt. Craig Smith with the Travis County sheriff’s office said Thursday.
The last incident happened Wednesday evening along Dessau Road, though Smith did not specify where. Smith said Chapa led deputies responding to the call in a short car chase before he fled on foot. Deputies were unable to catch up with him, but detained a woman who was with Chapa in the car. Deputies also recovered two firearms and “a substantial amount of narcotics” from the vehicle, Smith said.
Deputies believe Chapa has been involved in at least three other recent robberies and aggravated robberies.
Chapa previously had several felony drug warrants and misdemeanor warrants for his arrest, Smith said.
Authorities are asking anyone with information on Chapa’s whereabouts to avoid confronting him and call 911.
