COLLEGE STATION - What started with a trailer not displaying the proper lights ended with a police chase and an arrest on multiple charges, including theft of thousands of dollars of equipment owned by College Station.
College Station Police say around 11:00 p.m. Thursday, a pickup truck pulling a trailer south on Highway 6 was signaled to pull over near Nantucket Drive, but the driver accelerated off the roadway, across the median and the other side of the highway, and into a ditch on the west side of the road.
The driver and a passenger, Joshua Reeves Jr., ran. Reeves, 38 of Hempstead, was arrested for theft, evading arrest and possession of marijuana.
More than $32,000 of College Station-owned equipment like lawn mowers, trimmers and tools was with the truck. Authorities believe they had been stolen from a location on Krenek Tap Road shortly before the traffic stop.
Police are still searching for the driver of the 1999 white Chevrolet pickup in question. No description was given by police, who said they expect to make an additional arrest or arrests.
