Fugitive not yet 18, leads cops on chase through Beaumont in stolen car

A suspect police arrested Wednesday morning for stealing a car, probation violations and several outstanding warrants has not yet reached his 18th birthday. 

A Beaumont police spokesperson said an officer spotted a stolen car around 1 a.m.  near the corner of Eastex and Lucas.  The driver refused to pull over.  A short chase began, ending when the driver crashed near 11th Street at Delaware in Beaumont.   The teen didn’t give up quite yet.  He led officers on a foot chase, but was not able to outrun them. 

Police have not released the suspect’s name because of his age.  He was taken to the Minnie Rogers Juvenile Detention Center.
