Two Arrested on Multiple Charges After Brief Chase
Two people were arrested in Lubbock this morning after trying to flee police. An LPD officer on patrol this morning observed a suspicious vehicle near 34th and Quaker around 5:15.
When the officer pulled up behind the vehicle, it immediately fled the scene. The driver and a passenger then bailed out of their vehicle near 18th and Chicago and tried to escape from the officer on foot. The two suspects were immediately apprehended.
A police report shows that the suspects' vehicle contained items believed to have been stolen from apartment complex tool sheds. There was also a significant amount of a substance believed to be methamphetamine.
Both occupants were charged with Manufacture/Delivery of a Controlled Substance, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Burglary, Fraudulent Use/Possession of Identifying Information, Evading in a Vehicle, and Evading on Foot.
