It happened around 8:30am at a superstore in the 1400 block of North Loop 336 West.
Detectives immediately connected the carjacking to the robbery of a 70-year-old woman on Monday in the 2900 block of Interstate 45 and were able to identify an accomplice's vehicle. Further investigation led authorities to track the suspect, along with the stolen vehicle, in Brownsville.
The Brownsville Police Department was contacted, and officers from that agency caught the suspects, who've been identified as 33-year-old Christopher Mathison and 23-year-old Terran Gunter.
Both are currently being held in Brownsville on charges of theft. Mathison is also charged with felon in possession of a firearm.
Investigators believe Mathison and Gunter are involved in several robberies/car thefts along Interstate 45 and expect more charges to be filed against the duo.
