A Texas County Sheriff’s Department investigation has led to the recovery of one stolen truck, and the department sought leads on another vehicle.
Sheriff Scott Lindsey said that about 5 a.m. Sunday, a deputy responded to a burglar alarm at a residence on Highway AF in the Licking area. Upon arrival, the officer observed a man who fled from the officer in a Dodge truck reported stolen in Licking.
A short high-speed pursuit ensued, Lindsey said, and the deputy lost contact with the suspect vehicle on Highway N.
The Dodge truck was later recovered in Miller County, and Lindsey said another vehicle was stolen in Miller County that could be related to the incident at Licking. Later Monday, Lindsey said the stolen vehicle was located in Miller County and a suspect was taken into custody.
The stolen vehicle was described as a red 2005 Chevrolet 1500 single cab pickup.
