FRIENDSWOOD — A police chase in Friendswood ended early Monday with the arrests of two men and a woman suspected of robbing a gas station, police said.
A green Chevrolet Trailblazer headed westbound on FM 528 refused to pull over when a Friendswood police officer tried to initiate a traffic stop shortly before 1 a.m. then led the officer down Winding Way Drive, police said.
The car missed a turn in the Polly Ranch subdivision and crashed through a sign and shrubbery in the subdivision before coming to a halt, police said.
Two men then fled the vehicle on foot, leaving a woman in the backseat of the car, Friendswood police spokeswoman Lisa Price said.
The officer who was pursuing the vehicle stayed with the woman while police brought in canine units to search for the two men, police said.
Desiree Perez, 22, of Alvin was transported to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries and was released, Price said.
Joshua James Ramos, 17, of Alvin was found beneath a parked car in the subdivision and taken into custody, police said. He was charged with failure to identify a fugitive and evading arrest on foot.
As daylight broke, Friendswood police detained Taylor Jordan Geddes, 21, of Houston walking toward Alvin on West Parkwood Avenue, police said. He was charged with evading arrest and an accident involving personal injury or death, with his bond set at $200,000.
The three suspects and the green Chevrolet Trailblazer involved in the chase were connected to an armed robbery late Sunday at a gas station near West Bay Area Boulevard and FM 528, Price said.
A cash register and an unspecified amount of money were found on Winding Way Drive, where the initial police pursuit occurred, Price said.
Harris County deputies will seek to charge the three suspects with aggravated robbery, Price said.
