While on Patrol a Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office Deputy located a suspicious
vehicle and trailer in the 17500 block of CR 1900 at approximately 04:15 a.m. on

As deputies approached, the black in color Dodge Durango with a red trailer [attached to] the
vehicle fled from deputies and a pursuit ensued. While the vehicle ran from the
deputies, multiple sheets of plywood and other lumber fell from the trailer.

The vehicle continued to flee from deputies and ultimately ended in a cornfield in
the area of CR 1300 and Woodrow Road, where the vehicle and trailer were
located. The suspect was able to evade officers on foot and is currently still at
large. At this time, the occupant of the vehicle is described as a slender Hispanic
male with short hair or possibly bald.

The lumber recovered and returned to the contractor at the original residence.
