Harris County deputies caught up with two men they believe stole copper from a CVS Pharmacy this morning then led them on a chase.

Deputies say the suspects cut the pharmacy's power lines, hooked them to their truck and then tried to yank the cables from the ground. When deputies arrived around 4:30am, the truck sped off down Highway 249.

The chase wound through side streets until the suspects drove into a field on Boudreaux and ran into a wooded area.

One suspect allegedly fired at deputies. Both suspects were eventually caught in separate locations.
