KHOU 11's Lauren Talarico reports

HOUSTON – Houston Police say a suspected car burglar is in custody but another remains on the run after a foot chase at a west side hospital.

It happened early Wednesday morning at the Texas Children's Hospital - West Campus on the Katy Freeway.

An off-duty officer working security saw two men allegedly breaking into a Dodge car. The officer approached, but the men took off running.

One of the men was caught but the other got away, even after a search by helicopter.

Police say the men came to the scene a white pickup truck that was reportedly stolen last month. The same vehicle may have been used in other burglaries and robberies, police say.
