Suspected copper thieves lead police on chase in NW Harris Co.


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.
