Four people are in custody Monday night after deputies say they robbed a Jack in the Box in north Harris County.

SPRING, Texas -- Four suspects are in custody, but deputies are still looking for two more after a Jack in the Box was robbed Monday evening.

Investigators initially thought there were four suspects who robbed the Spring restaurant at I-45 and Cypresswood, but they believe more people are connected.

Harris County Precinct 4 and the Harris County Sheriff's Office investigated the wild scene, which led deputies into a neighborhood in Spring.

It all started just after 5 p.m. Monday when three people came in to the Jack in the Box near I-45 and Cypresswood Drive.

Investigators say the alleged robbers terrorized the customers, then jumped the counter and stole the cash register. They tried to get the safe but couldn't and settled for about $200.

According to deputies, all of them were armed, and one even had a shotgun. No shots were fired.

The thieves took off in a stolen red car, which investigators chased to a nearby cul-de-sac.

Eventually deputies were able to take four suspects into custody after those people were hiding in the woods Paramedics took at least one of the alleged robbers to the hospital for a dog bite.

"We are trying to keep crime out of here of course this didn't happen here, it ended up here," said Mark Smith, president of the Oaks at Devonshire HOA.

As of late Monday, investigators were searching the area of FM 1960 and I-45 for the two other suspects they believe were involved in the hold-up

Investigators also believe all of these alleged suspects are going to be tied to multiple robberies and hold-ups in the area, so they tell KHOU 11 News, "this is a good get for us tonight."
