Pursuit in North Polk County, CORRIGAN, January 5, 2018 - At 10:01 pm on January 4,, 2018, an officer with Corrigan Police Department noticed a Silver 2009 Buick 4 door with three occupants traveling north on N. Home St. The vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed and had a defective driver side brake light. The officer initiated a traffic stop and the vehicle increased speed. The vehicle fled north on N. Home to Piney Creek, then made a u-turn and proceeded south on N. Home St, refusing to stop.
The pursuit continued until approximately two miles south of the Corrigan City Limits when the officer’s patrol vehicle collided with the suspect vehicle. All three occupants fled into the wooded area on the west side of US 59.
Law enforcement personnel from Corrigan PD, Polk County Sheriff's Office, and the Texas Highway Patrol conducted a search of the area but were unable to locate the suspects. The vehicle was towed by Riley’s Wrecker Service and impounded.
Shortly afterwards, a Corrigan officer working an extra job at a local plant notified the police department that there were several suspicious persons at the plant. Officers with Corrigan PD and Polk County Sheriff Office responded and found plant personnel had already detained two of the suspects. The third suspect is still at large.
The two suspects were taken into custody (both juveniles) and will be charged with Felony Evading and Trespassing. However, further charges may be filed as the case is still under investigation.
No officers were injured during the pursuit.
