Two individuals with warrants face multiple charges after leading law enforcement in a high-speed chase late Friday morning.

The chase began after a Wilson County sheriff’s deputy approached a suspicious black truck on S.H. 97 near C.R. 306. The driver suddenly took off, achieving speeds of up to 100 mph as he raced through Sutherland Springs and La Vernia and up U.S. 87 before turning onto Loop 106 in Bexar County.

The two suspects abandoned their truck behind a trailer park, but a Department of Public Safety helicopter located them.

Bexar County deputies apprehended the pair and turned them over to Wilson County deputies.

Sgt. Broom, why are "several of our deputies on administrative leave"?

April 12 at 3:15am
Well Mr. Broom when you use the words "endangering our community" that was exactly what the chase in this article did. When I saw the high speed chase (and I was about 25 feet from the truck being chased when I had... More ›

I usually don't respond to comments on this site, however, I feel I need to reply to this misinformed citizen. We still have several of our deputies on administrative leave which has left our shift short on manpower. Until... More ›

Great Job Bexar County way to catch our bad guys. This had to have been a call from a citizen, seeing that SGT Broom won't let his guys pull over cars.

April 9 at 4:22am
I was wondering what was going on - I was returning from HEB headed toward SS near CoC when they all sped by. There must have been 10 cop cars - I recognized several LV cars/SUV and a state trooper and one unmarked truck in... More ›
