FLORESVILLE -- It is a case of déjà vu for the Floresville Police Department. For the second time in a week, a chase involving illegal immigrants has ended in a pasture located between G Street and Sunnyside Road here.
Just before 11 p.m. April 9, officers chased a brown Chevrolet Silverado 2500 pickup truck and a red Chevrolet Suburban into the city on S.H. 97 West. The Suburban fled officers while the Silverado later was recovered in a pasture approximately 1-1/2 miles from the intersection of G and 11th streets. As many as five people believed to have been riding in the truck -- later determined to have been reported stolen from Austin -- fled into the night, police said. One was apprehended at approximately 3 a.m. at the Whataburger near the intersection of S.H. 97 and U.S. 181 in Floresville.
