3 in custody after police pursuit with shots fired

Released by the Commerce Police Department:

COMMERCE —   On Friday, December 09, 2011 just before 7:00 am, Hopkins County Investigators told Commerce Officers that they were watching a vehicle with stolen property at a local convenience store and that they would be making contact with the suspects soon to attempt to recover stolen property. 

During the initial contact, the suspects fled from the deputies and a pursuit ensued.  During the pursuit a local business in the 2000 block of Live Oak was damaged when the suspect rammed a Hopkins County Deputies vehicle into the business. A chain link fence at another business in the 1500 block of West Neal was damaged by the suspect's vehicle.

The pursuit continued thru neighborhood streets and went to the dead end area of Bonham and Bois D Arc streets.  Several shots were fired in that location and damage was caused to the yard of a home in the 1100 block of Bois D Arc.  Two passengers, a white female and a white male fled from the vehicle.  The female was detained by a Commerce resident at gun point in a backyard in that area.  A search for the white male began immediately. 

Deputies along with Commerce Police Officers continued to pursue the suspect's vehicle to the area of County Road 4400 were a white male was taken into custody at that location.  He was arrested and has been transported to Hunt County where he will be booked in on several charges including Assault on a Police Officer, Felony Evading Using a Vehicle and Theft.

The white male suspect that fled on foot from the area of Bois D Arc Street was picked up by a white male in a vehicle in the downtown square area.  That suspect was arrested a few minutes later during a traffic stop in the parking lot of the animal shelter on O'Neal Street.  He has been transported to Hunt County where he is being held on a Parole Violation Warrant.  The driver of the vehicle was arrested on traffic violations and has been booked in at the Commerce Police Department.

The investigation is being conducted by Commerce Police Department, Hopkins County Sheriff's Department and the Texas Rangers.

    The John Tyler Lions always seem to look sharp in their uniforms. But thanks to East Texas lawyer Keith Miller, the Lions will look better and play safer.

Miller's donation of 7,500 dollars, will go to help the lions cover that cost. "Keith Miller's been a big sponsor of John Tyler High School football program for years now.  I know it's...More >>
