The San Angelo Police Department’s Patrol Division and Anti-Crime Unit were involved in multiple foot pursuits during their recent tour of duty.
The first pursuit began around 8:15 p.m. last night when members of the Department’s Anti-Crime Unit stopped a vehicle for displaying fictitious license plates in the 2300 block of W. Loop 306. The suspect fled the traffic detention and ran northbound across the Loop where he was subsequently taken into custody in the parking lot of the Roadway Inn. A records check on the suspect, Jacob C. Smart, showed he had eight (8) warrants. This incident resulted in additional charges for Enhanced Evading Arrest/Detention, two counts of Possession of Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1, and Failure to Identify Giving False/Fictitious Info.
The second pursuit began just after 9:45 p.m. when a subject fled a traffic stop near East 25th and North Chadbourne. The subject made it one block before he was taken into custody by Officers. Jose A. Reyes, 45, had warrants for Bail Jumping and Forgery. This incident resulted in an additional charge of Evading Arrest Detention.
The third and fourth pursuits began around 12:25 a.m. this morning when members of the Anti-Crime Unit attempted to make contact with two male juveniles believed to be engaged in criminal activity at commercial buildings located in the 500 block of W. Beauregard. The juveniles fled on foot and Officers gave chase. One juvenile was tackled in Santa Fe Park after he refused multiple commands to surrender. The second juvenile was taken into custody by Patrol Officers at the corner of Twohig and David. This incident resulted in arrests for Evading Arrest Detention and citations for Curfew Violation. Both juveniles, age 13, were transported to the Tom Green County Juvenile Justice Center.
