Police are still searching for one person and another three are facing charges after a chase in southwest Houston.

The chase started on Greenfork when police tried to pull over a truck. The driver eventually stopped on Beechnut and Kendalia.

The truck was not stolen and the driver did not have any outstanding warrants. The driver told police he was afraid of getting a ticket and that is why he took off when they tried to make a traffic stop. He ran several stop signs and red lights before pulling over.

The three passengers in the truck ran. Two were caught, they have also been charged with evading arrest.
