4 teen suspects allegedly lead police in chase through E. Houston (KTRK)

Four teenagers have been arrested after leading police on a chase through east Houston.

According to investigators, the chase started around 5:56 p.m. Friday on the East Freeway near Monmouth Street. Baytown police officers were trying to conduct a traffic stop when the driver took off.

Leo Galvan lives in the Fifth Ward where the pursuit ended. He saw Skyeye 13 overhead and he thought there might be a police chase.

"I was just chilling outside and out of nowhere I see the chopper, and I knew there was probably a car chase coming my way so I started recording," he said.

He caught the final moments of the chase on his cell phone.

A Baytown Police Department spokesman said this started with reports of vehicle burglaries at a grocery store on Garth Road. The suspects allegedly got away in a dark-colored Chevrolet Avalanche.

Later, officers reported seeing the Avalanche and they tried to pull it over when the driver sped away, starting the chase.

The chase ended around 6:15 p.m. near Love Plaza and Abernathy.
