manhunt in liberty county-rider injured search dog dead

Approximately 8 a.m. Friday Deputies from the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office responded to a suspicious vehicle call near the intersection of F.M. 563 and C.R. 133n.  The caller had obtained the license plate to the vehicle.  This license plate was checked and was determined to be a stolen vehicle from Galveston County, Texas.

As Deputies arrived in the area, one of the Deputies spotted the vehicle and a short chase began.  The suspects drove the stolen vehicle, a blue newer model Toyota pickup truck into the tree line and exited the vehicle, fleeing on foot into the trees and marshlands.

Deputies from the LCSO converged into the area and a Command Post was established.  The Texas Department of Public Safety and Texas Department of Criminal Justice assisted in the search of the three men with a helicopter, tracking dogs and horses.

Deputies found numerous stolen items in the bed of the truck and inside the truck.  With the assistance of citizens in the area, some photographs taken of the men as they were on the run matched photographs found inside the stolen vehicle.  All three men have been identified.

The three men are still on the run at the time of this release.  In the course of this search, one of the horse mounted TDCJ Officers was injured as was his horse.  Also, one of the dogs used in the search was later found deceased, cause of death is unknown.  The search was temporarily suspended, allowing personnel on the scene to hydrate and recover.

Late last night a sighting of two of the three was reported on County Road 133 South. The third one was reported not with them. The area they are in is heavy mash land with plenty of snakes and alligators.
