WFPD Led on High-Speed Chase

Wichita Falls residents were on high alert Saturday, as police searched for a suspect in their neighborhood.

A man wrecked into a privacy fence at the corner of South Ridge and Windthorst Rd. around 5:30 PM, after leading police on a high speed chase through town.

WFPD officers said they attempted to pull the man over, when he took off. After he crashed his vehicle, the suspect then fled on foot.

Officers searched the nearby neighborhood, and detained one person for questioning.

Police say the chase may have also been connected to a burglary earlier in the day, in the 5400 block of Ricci St.
