Man spots stolen truck, chase it until it crashes out in front of Humble PD, officials say

Humble police said a man is likely going to be charged after he fired shots at a truck that had been stolen from him.

HUMBLE, Texas — An intersection in Humble was shut down Tuesday after a somewhat bizarre incident came to an end in front of the police department.

West Main Street at South Bender Avenue, which is where the Humble Police Department is located, was shut down around 3 p.m. when a chase came to an end, authorities said.

The chase, however, didn't involve the police, authorities said.

According to Humble PD, a recently stolen truck was spotted by the man from which it was taken. Police said the owner of the truck saw someone driving it and decided to take action.

The rightful owner chased the truck for about 10 minutes and police said he fired at least two shots. They also said he called 911 two times during the chase.

The chase came to an end when the truck blew both front tires after going airborne while going over railroad tracks, officials said.

A Harris County Sheriff's Office unit was in the area at the end of the chase and took the driver into custody. The truck's rightful owner was taken in for questioning.

No one was injured in the incident, according to police, but the rightful owner of the truck is likely going to be facing charges for firing his gun during the incident.

The person who was driving the stolen truck has a history of stealing vehicles, police said.
