A suspected carjacker was behind bars this morning after making a dash for freedom and being taken down by a police dog.

Authorities say the suspect stole a car from a woman who was using a Red Box outside a Walgreens around 8:30pm.

Police soon spotted the stolen car on FM 1960. A high-speed chase ensued, lasting until the driver pulled over at Lee Road.

The suspect then took off on foot, running into a subdivision and jumping a fence.

Officers called in a helicopter and K-9 unit. The dog managed to catch him.

Police say he may be linked to a ring of carjackers targeting drivers in Kingwood.
