Suspects facing several charges for stealing car at gas station, leading deputies on a chase, BCSO says

Police say no one was injured in the robbery.

SAN ANTONIO — Multiple local law enforcement agencies including Texas DPS, the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, and the Atascosa Sheriff’s Office helped arrest three suspects after an aggravated robbery on Tuesday morning. 

Police said a victim was pumping gas at a convenience store on Tarpon Drive in Boerne when a vehicle with two men inside pulled up alongside the victim. 

The man in the passenger seat got out of the vehicle with an AR-15 and demanded the victim’s vehicle, a purple Dodge Charger, police said. Authorities said the woman gave the man the keys to her car. They reportedly allowed her get her purse and garage-door opening. The suspects then fled the scene in the purple Dodge Charger. 

Police said no one was injured in the robbery. 

Deputies were later able to track down and follow the stolen vehicle with the help of a Boerne car dealership, which had GPS tracking on the car. The car had been on loan to the victim while repairs were being done on her car.

Multiple law enforcement agencies chased the suspects for 60 miles with speeds reaching 100-120 miles per hour. Authorities were able to successfully spike the stolen vehicle and three suspects were arrested.

“They went to this part of town because they wanted to steal a fancy car,” Sheriff Salazar said in remarks Tuesday afternoon. “Criminals don’t care where you are. You’ve got to be aware of your surroundings, you’ve got to have your head on a swivel.”

Sheriff Salazar also said the AR-15 the suspects had was possibly stolen.

This is a developing story.
