Suspect runs from Devine PD

A suspect jumps the fence at the vet clinic in Devine and flees from police on foot.

Devine police recovered a vehicle stolen from the Castroville area this past Tuesday, September 5, leading authorities on a chase on foot.
Around 12:10 am, a Devine PD officer stopped the Dodge pick-up truck for a traffic violation in the 1300 block of Hwy. 173, which is just past Devine High School, near Devine Veterinary Clinic. The officer discovered the truck was stolen, and the driver took off running.
“The suspect ran into the brushy area behind the vet clinic,” said Devine PD Lieutenant Chris Andrews. “Devine PD, DPS, and Natalia PD pursued the subject for approximately 30 minutes, but were unable to locate the subject.”
A body camera worn by a Devine PD officer captured the incident, and police are working to identify the suspect in the video.
