A police officer managed to thwart a would-be-crook trying to burglarize an east Houston Walgreens.
The officer was patrolling near I-10 and Lockwood when the officer says he spotted the suspect trying to break into the store around 3:30am Friday. According to police, when the suspect saw the officer, he took off running.
The officer chased the suspect and eventually caught him after he ran across I-10 two times. HPD said he now faces attempted burglary and evading arrest charges.
The suspect's name was not immediately released.
