2 Arrested After Leading Officers On A High Speed Chase With A Infant Inside Their Vehicle

On 08/21/21 at around 2:15 p.m., a Deputy with the U.S. Marshals Service aired an attempt to locate for a Nissan Altima with two suspects inside of it associated with aggravated robberies.

The vehicle was located traveling southbound on I-45 approaching FM 1488. SHPD officers staged within the city limits for the vehicle. The vehicle was then located approaching Research Forest Drive and SHPD attempted to stop the vehicle. The vehicle attempted to evade officers as it traveled into Harris County.

While officers were pursuing the vehicle, a firearm was seen being thrown out of it. The vehicle finally came to a stop in the 14,000 block of the Hardy Toll Road after leading officers on a high-speed pursuit. Both suspects were taken into custody and the firearm was later recovered. Shortly after taking the suspects into custody, officers discovered an infant inside the vehicle. The infant was unharmed and was later released to a responsible family member.

The driver of the vehicle was charged with Evading Arrest in a Motor Vehicle, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, Endangering a Child, and for an active Aggravated Robbery warrant. The passenger was also arrested for an active Aggravated Robbery warrant. Several surrounding agencies assisted with this call.
