HOUSTON, TX. (THECOUNT) — A pair of 15-year-old suspects are under arrest, after taking Houston authorities on a 30-mile high-speed chase in a stolen vehicle overnight.

Authorities say, two 15-year-old “gang members,” led them on a chase in a stolen vehicle that lasted for 30 miles overnight.


Police tols local reporters that the incident started at Gessner and the Westpark Tollway in southwest Houston, where they tried to pull over the teens because they were driving erratically. The suspects refused to stop, sparking a chase that went to the Beltway and then south to FM 521.

HPD says the teens were tracked the entire chase by patrol cars and the police helicopter.

An officer who is trained in the PIT maneuver caught up with the stolen SUV, but the teens pulled over on their own just outside Sandy Point.

“The driver and passenger are 15 year old. I believe documented gang members. Right now, we are trying to investigate a little further to see what was going on this evening,” said HPD Lt. Larry Crowson. source

HPD tells us the 15-year-old suspects will both face charges of felony evading and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
