WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - Three people were arrested Wednesday after being involved in a car chase with Wichita Falls police officers; two of the suspects were wanted on warrants for a recent robbery and burglary.

Sara Chandler, Javier Castro, Remarcus Donnell were all arrested after the pursuit, which started when officers tried to stop a car with a broken brake light. Police said the car matched the description of one used in an recent aggravated robbery.

The driver of the car refused to stop for officers, breaking several traffic laws in the process. The chase ended at Denver and 8th streets, where Chandler was arrested for evading arrest in a vehicle.

Before the car was stopped, Castro and Donnell exited and tried to flee on foot. Both of them had active felony arrest warrants and were captured in the area of Brook and 9th streets.

Castro had a warrant for an aggravated robbery that happened at Sam’s Dollar Saver on Aug. 9. He was also charged with evading arrest and resisting arrest.

Donnell had an active warrant for burglary with the intent to commit a felony from a home invasion burglary that happened on Aug. 4 in the 1300 block of Bell St. He was also charged with evading arrest.

Another suspect, Lonnie Clark, was also served with an arrest warrant for the Bell Street burglary. He was already in jail for unrelated evading arrest and warrant charges.

WFPD said Crime Stoppers tips were instrumental in making these arrests.
