WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — After several hours of searching for a man who ran from police after a car chase, Williamson County Sheriff’s Office says they have everyone they were looking for in custody.

The spokesperson for the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy tried to pull over a driver for a traffic stop on SH 130 around 10 a.m., but the two people in the car wouldn’t stop. During the pursuit, deputies say the suspects threw out a bag of methamphetamines and a stolen pistol.

The chase ended about 15 minutes later when the suspects crashed near the Walgreens on Ranch Road 620 in Round Rock.

Authorities were able to catch the driver after a short foot chase, but the passenger wasn’t apprehended until 4 p.m. in the 1000 block of Oak Haven.

People who live in the nearby Brushy Creek neighborhood received an automated call stating police were searching the area for the suspect who got away.
