On Saturday, Sept. 4 at 5:43 p.m., KPD says officers were dispatched to the 400 block of Heidenreich Lane for a burglary in progress at the City of Kyle Wastewater Treatment construction site. When officers arrived on the scene they say they saw a black Chevrolet Avalanche on site.
When officers attempted to make contact with the occupants, the vehicle fled. Police say a pursuit ensued through the construction area into the Waterleaf Subdivision and Cool Springs, and eventually onto northbound Interstate 35.
The vehicle exited I-35 at the 215-mile marker and crashed into a light pole on I-35 west access at Kyle Parkway. The two occupants in the vehicle then fled on foot. The passenger was detained by officers in a Wendy's drive-thru, and the driver was detained by deputies from the Hays County Sheriff's Office in a Walmart parking lot. The vehicle was found with stolen property from the construction site.

The suspects were taken to Ascension Seton Hays for medical clearance and then processed into the Hays County Jail.
