HPD: Chase suspect found hiding in hotel room

HOUSTON – Houston Police say a possible burglar involved in a chase overnight was later found hiding in a west side hotel room.

Patrol officers spotted an SUV driving erratically on Westpark near Beltway 8, but the driver allegedly refused to stop.

The suspect led police on a short pursuit to Soveriegn near Harwin where he struck a fence. The driver got out of the SUV and jumped over the fence to get away, but a female passenger remained at the scene and was taken into the custody.

Officers called in K-9 units and the helicopter for a search, and the man was later found hiding in a hotel room.

Police believe the suspect may be responsible for a burglary not far away.
