HOUSTON -

Two men were arrested after police said they led officers on a chase in a stolen car.

It all started around 11 p.m. Wednesday near the intersection of Telephone Road at Bellfort in southeast Houston.

Houston police said a patrol officer ran the plate of a Nissan Altima after he saw the driver commit a traffic violation. The vehicle came up stolen.

Additional officers were called before police tried to pull the car over. When police started flashing their lights, the suspect vehicle pulled into a parking lot and stopped. Then, two black men jumped out of the car and started running.

Police were able to catch both men and take them into custody.

Houston police said the stolen vehicle was taken several days ago from the owner’s home.
