Two Men Arrested After Break-In Turned Into Car Chase

Two men have been arrested after a break-in turned into a wild car chase Tuesday in Archer County that ended in Wichita Falls.

An Archer County Sheriff's Deputy said he tried to stop Christopher Dee Bridges who tried to break into Lake Road Welding.

Bridges managed to steal a pick-up truck inside the shop and drove through the doors.  He then rammed into the Deputy's vehicle twice before taking off.  This left the stolen vehicle with two-flat tires.  The 23-year-old ended up bailing on the stolen truck and was pepper sprayed by authorities, but he was still able to steal another vehicle.  The vehicle was left running in from of Play Alley Day Care while parents were dropping of their children.

Bridges fled in the car northbound on Highway 79 in Wichita Falls.

The Wichita Falls Police Department finally arrested Bridges at the 2000 block of Ave. G.

Bridges has been charged with Aggravated Assault on a Public Servant, Burglary of a building, Unauthorized use of a motor vehicle time two, and Evading a Vehicle.

A second suspect was located on Tuesday, while using a phone to apparently have someone pick him up near the scene of the burglaries.

Jason Clay Atchison  was arrested on an unrelated warrant from another county.  After interviewing with investigators, in became apparent that the 40-year-old was the second suspect in the multiple burglaries. On Wednesday Atchison was charged with Burglary of a Building. 

He is at the Archer County Jail and his bond has been set at $100,000.
