FLORESVILLE -- Police here report that a man captured Jan. 15 after a vehicular pursuit and subsequent crash is now considered a fugitive.

Sgt. Devin Keen of the Floresville Police Department confirmed Feb. 7 that Dallas Warren Crisp, 29, of Pleasanton fled after being treated in a San Antonio hospital for injuries sustained in the crash. He is wanted by the department on arrest warrants charging him with two counts of burglary of a vehicle, burglary of a habitation, failure to identify, and evading arrest or detention with a vehicle. His alleged accomplice, Roxie Jean Talarico, 18, of Pleasanton remains in the Wilson County Jail.

Crisp is described as a white male, standing 6 feet tall and weighing 170 pounds, with blond hair and blue eyes. Crisp has a gap in his front teeth and has several tattoos.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call the Floresville Police Department at 830-393-4055. Anonymous tips, which could yield a cash reward if they lead to an arrest, can be provided to Crime Stoppers of Wilson County at 830-393-INFO (4636).

In a separate incident, Keen and Patrolman Matt Redd conducted a traffic stop Feb. 7 on Peach Street at approximately 1 a.m., after a pursuit that originated on Fourth Street near the River Bend residential subdivision. This was after a vehicle that allegedly had a broken taillight drove past Keen.

The sergeant said that during the chase, he could see the male driver and female passenger attempting to hide items in the vehicle. Through their investigation, the officers found drug paraphernalia, packaging material, methamphetamine, Xanax pills, and marijuana. The officers also found a .40 caliber Smith and Wesson semi-automatic handgun containing a full magazine of armor-piercing, hollow-point bullets known as “cop killers.”

Brandon Sweeney, 22, of San Antonio and 21-year-old Nicole Sauceda of Floresville each were charged with:

•Unlawful carrying of a firearm by a felon

•Possession of a prohibited weapon

•Possession of less than 1 gram of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1

•Manufacture and delivery of less than 1 gram of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1

•Possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana.

Sweeney also was charged with evading arrest or detention with a vehicle.

One day earlier, at approximately 1:30 p.m., Patrolman Eric Hutchinson of the Floresville Police Department said that Raymond Hammer, 43, of Floresville allegedly failed to signal a turn as he was driving through the intersection of C and South Second streets in Floresville. Hutchinson said he followed Hammer to his home on E Street, where he conducted a traffic stop.

Hammer, who has a lengthy criminal history, was arrested and charged with driving while license is invalid with a previous conviction. When the patrolman was taking an inventory of the vehicle prior to its being towed from the scene, he found a glass pipe with marijuana residue and a knife with an 11-inch blade, resulting in Hammer also being charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a prohibited weapon.
