BRAZOS COUNTY, Texas — A Kilgore man has been charged in connection to a police chase in Brazos County Sunday night.
Breden Ford, 19, is charged with manual delivery of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance less than one gram and evading arrest. Authorities also said there was a loaded gun in the car and a substantial amount of cash.
On Sunday, October 3, just after 10 p.m. a deputy with the Brazos County Sheriff’s Office said he spotted a vehicle speeding on I&GN Road and attempted to pull the vehicle over near Graham Road. Ford, who was allegedly driving the speeding vehicle, refused to stop, according to the deputy, and began driving at speeds nearing 100 mph on Graham Road.
21-387 A Narcotics Unit observed a suspicious vehicle with no plates coming from a high narcotics location. Mobile surveillance was conducted on the vehicle until it stopped for gas. Upon contact, officers activated their emergency lights. The driver, who was pumping gas, fled on foot while the passenger jumped into the driver’s seat to flee in the car. Officers successfully deployed a StarChase Tag onto the back of the fleeing vehicle as it sped away. After a short foot pursuit, officers were able to apprehend the original driver. Officers were able to track and recover the fleeing vehicle, which was reported stolen out of a neighboring county, to a location where it was found abandoned. The second driver was later identified and a warrant for arrest has been issued.
