When police officers ID’ed a car as stolen in an armed robbery, they attempted to intervene early Wednesday morning in southwest Houston.
The car’s occupants weren’t so cooperative, however, and a chase ensued, lasting for about 30 minutes after the suspects fled the 10500 block of Beechnut in southwest Houston.
Officers raced after the car until it reached Sugar Crossing Drive in Sugar Land, when the driver lost control, sending the car airborne and landing up in a retention pond.
Authorities were then able to arrest four men inside the car.
Heavy machinery was at work early Wednesday morning to extricate the car from the water.
