On August 2, 2019, at about 2:12 am, The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a victim who lives in the 100 block of Eagle Rock, The Woodlands, TX advising he caught a black male inside of his car. The victim advised that the male suspect took off running and he gave chase. The victim advised the suspect jumped into a truck that was parked down the road waiting on the suspect. The victim also advised the suspect truck crashed into a vehicle that was parked on the street.
The victim gave chase providing law enforcement with the location of the suspect truck. During the chase, the victim struck the rear of the suspect’s truck with his vehicle. Law enforcement from multiple agencies caught up to the suspect vehicle at the intersection of Robinson Road and Maplewood Dr in Oak Ridge North. Deputies detained both occupants identified as Jques Minor (B/M) 19 years of age and Devon Speights (B/M) 18 years of age. Both suspects are from the Houston area.
During the investigation, Deputies discovered that the truck the suspects were driving had been reported stolen by Sugarland Police Department.
