HPD PURSUIT OF JUVENILE ROBBERS
Early Saturday night four juveniles decided to steal a Ford Expedition from a Houston Police Officers family member. From there they went on a robbery spree, robbing at least seven persons in the north Houston area. An attempt to locate was put out on the Expedition and just after 1 am a North Shepherd patrol unit spotted it on the North Loop near Shepherd. When the officer tried to stop the vehicle it sped off at speeds of close to 100 mph. The driver appeared to know Houston well as he took I-45 to Quitman, then down White Oak to Houston Avenue and drove right past Houston Police station at 61 Riesner. The driver then got back on the Pierce elevated to US 59 south, exited Fannin and got back on US 59 North to I45 and exited on Allen Parkway. From there to Waugh Drive as they ran the streets of Montrose and decided to head to Houston Heights. After touring several streets including 14th near Shepherd which years ago was blocked off from the Timber Grove Subdivision they u turned, hit one patrol car and ran a Sgt off the road. They continued up through the Garden Oaks area before heading to the North Loop on Ella. As they approached Ella the driver was able to see the wall of police cars and turned onto a street just before the loop throwing money out the window. They then stopped and tried to run but gave that up quickly as officers approached with guns drawn. To the officer’s amazement the vehicle was occupied by five juveniles, the driver only 14-years-old. In all, over thirty miles were traveled. When officers went back to one location on Summer and Center to retrieve purses thrown out, they were gone.
