Troopers Chase Stolen U-haul Truck

DPS officials tell us one person is in custody today after an overnight chase involving a U-Haul truck in Longview. Troopers say they chased a speeding stolen U-Haul on FM 349 just after midnight. The suspect wrecked through a fence, then fled on foot. A short time later, 28 year old Jason Wigley of Nashville, Tennessee was taken into custody.

Investigators say Wigley stole a truck from the Eastman Road area, then took it to a U-Haul center on Marshall Avenue, where he changed license plates between the two, then sped towards Kilgore on Highway 31. He is charged with evading arrest and criminal trespassing, and is being held without bond.
