HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The Houston Police Department's Robbery Division is asking for the public's help in identifying the suspects who robbed a customer at a Burger King drive-thru.

Police just released surveillance video from the incident that occurred last month in the 9000 block of Clinton Drive.

Moments later, police found the car speeding in the 11000 block of the Eastex Freeway and tried to perform a traffic stop. The suspects refused to stop, exited the vehicle and ran off on foot.
