That's when roughly an hour later the suspect, while brandishing a machete, stole a front-end loader from a construction site near Interstate 10 and Ralph Fair Road.

The suspect then led SAPD and deputies on a short vehicle chase along the access road that finally ended in the 100 block of 2nd street in Boerne. The suspect is now in custody, Hughes said.
