Two suspects are now in police custody after a large search in southwest Houston

Police say two armed carjacking suspects have been arrested after leading officers in a chase in southwest Houston.

HPD says the chase began just off the South Loop near Highway 288.

The men were allegedly inside a stolen car and at one point bailed out of the vehicle, running away from police.

With the aid of a police helicopter, the men were found around 4:30am in the area around Almeda and Holmes.

When our Eyewitness News crew arrived, there was a swarm of police activity as officers searched for the men.

Both were considered armed and dangerous by HPD. Fortunately, this incident has ended with both suspects in custody.
