A man has been arrested, accused of stealing a pick-up truck and then using a machete to steal a front-end loader before leading deputies on a chase in far Northwest Bexar County, officials said Monday.
Rosanne Hughes, a spokesperson for the Bexar County Sheriff's Office, said the incident began around 7:15 a.m. when the suspect jumped out of his vehicle and stole a pick-up truck that was running in the 9600 block of Dewberry Path.
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.
