Four arrested after high-speed chase in NE Houston

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Four people were arrested after leading police on a high speed chase overnight in northeast Houston.

Police say the chase began around 3am when an employee of an Academy store recognized the vehicle as potentially being involved in a burglary at the store yesterday.

Officers pursued the vehicle as it sped down the East Freeway near Mercury before the chase ended in northeast Houston.

The suspects bailed from the white truck when they rammed the vehicle into a fence.

One man was detained immediately at the scene while a search ensued for the other three suspects.

Police found the three others inside some nearby homes, where one person was found in the attic of a home. Another suspect was found in the closet of another home. A third man was found under the bed.

Investigators are trying to determine whether the suspects knew the owners of those homes.
