Authorities are searching for three men, each apparently with an extensive criminal background, who led deputies on a short chase in a stolen vehicle in Liberty County Friday morning.
Liberty County sheriff's deputies received a call about a suspicious vehicle near FM 563 and CR 133 around 8 a.m. and determined the blue Toyota truck was stolen from Galveston County, authorities said.
One of the deputies spotted the truck and a short chase began, authorities said. The suspects — identified as Christopher Ryan Treece, 20; Chance Hunt, 19, and William Dale Perkins, 40 — drove the truck into the tree line, then fled into the trees and marshlands, authorities said.
Stolen items were found in the bed of the truck and inside the vehicle, authorities said.
