The San Jacinto County Sheriff’s Office helped end a multi-county vehicle pursuit with the arrest of a robbery suspect from Porter.

On March 18, SJCSO was notified of a vehicle pursuit coming northbound on U.S. Highway 59 involving the robbery suspect.

Reports indicate a deputy assigned to the Criminal Interdiction Unit was working the U.S. 59 corridor and joined the pursuit after the suspect narrowly missed a spike strip set out by Texas DPS troopers.

The pursuit continued into Polk County when the suspect made a U-turn and continued back into San Jacinto County. The interdiction unit, equipped with a vehicle designed for high-speed pursuits, was directly behind the suspect.

After crossing back into San Jacinto County, the suspect pulled over and surrendered; the San Jacinto County Sheriff’s Deputy gave commands for the suspect to exit the vehicle, where he was then placed in custody without incident.

The suspect then was released to Montgomery County Law Enforcement where he is set to face multiple charges.

Other agencies involved in the chase include the Splendora Police Department, Montgomery County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office, Texas Department of Public Safety and the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.
