Suspects arrested after chase in north Houston
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Four juveniles, all under 16 years old, are in custody after police say they led them on a pair of high-speed chases after they were caught breaking into cars overnight.
There are four teenagers in custody. All are between the ages of 14 and 16. The victims say the suspects were targeting Dodge vehicles early this morning and now they're left trying to figure out what to do next.
Cedrisia Blow doesn't know how she's going to get to work.
"I can't do it. I can't, I can't. This just make no sense," she said.
Her Dodge Neon is missing its ignition, a back window is busted and the driver's side door lock is bent after police found four teenagers sitting in it early Monday morning.
"They're after Dodge. There was four Dodge trucks that they had the tow truck over here, the constables was over here and then look what they did," Blow said.
In fact, both Dodge cars and trucks are among the top 10 most stolen vehicles in the Houston area, at number seven and eight.
It happened around 3am at an apartment complex in the 5600 block of Yale as police were responding to a call on a burglary of a motor vehicle in progress.
Police say the teens first fled on foot, then jumped into a purple Dodge pickup truck and a Dodge Durango - both stolen - and tried to get away, nearly running over one officer in the process.
Police chased the purple pickup to Tidwell and Antoine, where it got stuck in a field. The suspect ran, but police arrested them.
Police caught up to the Dodge Durango at the North Freeway and Crosstimbers.
Meantime, back at the complex, a few people are left without a car, like Darwin Trent's dad.
"He called my mom and asked her did she see the car this morning? And she had said no," Trent said.
And as for Blow...
"I can't go to work. I'm not going to be able to pay my light bill, I mean, glass is everywhere, this don't make no sense," she said.
The teens will be charged with evading in a motor vehicle, evading on foot and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. No word if any more arrests are forthcoming.
