A chase in Ft. Bend County yesterday led to the arrest of two of three people deputies believe are behind a pair of home burglaries.

It all started around 11am when deputies responded to a burglary call in the 15400 block of Mueck Road, which is near the Tierra Grande subdivision. Witnesses told authorities they saw the subjects leaving the scene in a blue vehicle.

About an hour later, a deputy spotted a vehicle matching the description traveling west in the 14000 block of FM 361 near FM 1994. That deputy, along with another unit, stopped the car on Boothline Road. But when the deputies approached, the vehicle took off and the chase was on.

The suspects stopped along FM 762, say deputies, and at that point, two males jumped out and ran across a pasture. A female, identified as Mayra Alejandra Zuniga, 33, was detained near the vehicle. A male, identified as Damgry Ramos Mateo, 32, was later found hiding in a creek bed. The third subject remains on the loose.

Investigators believe the three are behind not only the initial burglary that they were called out to, but also a second burglary on Hughes Road, which is near the location where they were spotted and pulled over.

Deputies say some of the cash and items from both burglaries were recovered from the vehicle.

Mateo faces an evading arrest charge while Zuniga is charged with burglary of a habitation. Both are under immigration holds and remain in the Fort Bend County Jail. If you have information on the third subject in this case, call the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office at 281-341-4664.
