Suspect steals pizza delivery car... leads police on a chase

Posted: Updated:

The Beaumont Police Department says a man who led them on a chase late Saturday night committed another crime prior to the police pursuit. 

Around 11:08p.m. Saturday night, patrol officers  in the area of Concord and Carlisle attempted to stop a suspicious vehicle, a 2006 silver Honda Civic, that ran a stop sign. The driver did not stop for officers and led them on a pursuit through the north end of Beaumont. The driver finally  turned west on Harrison, crossed Gulf Street and left the roadway into the rail yard west of Gulf street at a high rate of speed. The vehicle flipped several times and the driver was ejected.

Police say as officers attempted to take him into custody he became combative and attempted to arm himself with a rail spike. After a brief struggle he was taken into custody. He was uncooperative with officers and they were unable to get his name and information.

 E.M.S. was summoned and after they began treatment he became unresponsive. He was transported to Christus Hospital St. Elizabeth and was admitted with undetermined injuries. Hospital staff advised that he was expected to survive. 

Shortly after the crash,  the owner of the vehicle, a Domino's Pizza delivery driver called and reported that it had been stolen from Christus Hospital St. Elizabeth. The I.D. Unit responded to the hospital and took fingerprints and photographs of the suspect in an attempt to identify him.  No one but the driver of the stolen vehicle was injured during the incident.

The driver of the stolen vehicle was released from the hospital Sunday morning and booked in to Jefferson County Jail. He was identified as 23 year old LaCarlos Landry of Beaumont. He was booked in for failure to identify himself, but has several charges pending.
