HPD put out information on the truck, and it wasn't long before officers saw the pickup.

Police said the two suspects refused to stop, leading them in a chase through several neighborhoods off of Federal Road and Maxie, off of Normandy.



Officers brought out the spike strips in a bid to end all this, causing two tires on the truck to blow out.

The suspects finally stopped along the I-10 East feeder road, just before Normandy. They were promptly taken into custody.

Investigators said the chase lasted about 30 minutes.

Now both men are facing aggravated robbery and felony evading charges.
