FLORESVILLE -- As of 10:30 a.m., Jerry Guerrero, 39, of Floresville, is in the custody of the Floresville Police Department, officials said. Anonymous tips led police to a residence on D Street earlier this morning, where Guerrero was arrested on a warrant charging him with evading arrest or detention with a motor vehicle.

Guerrero’s charge stems from a high-speed pursuit through Floresville Aug. 30. Lt. Chad Clark of the Floresville Police Department said Guerrero fled from Sgt. Devin Keen after a witness reported that two people stole copper from his truck. Keen said Guerrero left the scene in a Ford Explorer while his alleged accomplice, 29-year-old Isenia Sotelo of Floresville, fled on foot. She was captured on Ninth Street by Police Chief Lorenzo Herrera a short time later.

The pursuit ended when the Ford Explorer crashed through a fence near the intersection of F.M. 536 and C.R. 101 west of Floresville. Guerrero allegedly fled the scene on foot, which spurred a lengthy manhunt and led to the warrant being issued for his arrest.

Upon apprehension, officers took Guerrero to the Connally Memorial Medical Center in Floresville, where he was treated for injuries sustained in the crash.

Nobody is d**ing the police, in fact quite the opposite. Had council allocated their slush fund to police protection, things like this could be avoided. Read the post again. Just like a rash of....ten. burglaries in the same ... More ›

Thank you law enforcement! I would rather see blue and red lights flashing in my kids' Rooms rather than chalk marks on the floor. Don't damn the cops for doing their jobs get out and vote next time.

Isn't there a saying that Nero fiddled while Rome burned?

We spent last night listening to the all too frequent sounds of screeching tires, sirens and high speed chase we've grown acclimated to hearing in Floresville. Meth labs. Homelessness. Domestic violence. But our elected officials ... More ›
