All night manhunt ends in arrests

The Houston Chronicle is reporting; an all-night search ended in arrests Saturday after a Liberty County man shot out the tires of a truck carrying burglars, an official said.

The two men and one woman from the Huffman community loaded items from an outbuilding at the man's property off of FM 1010 into their truck Friday and were attempting to flee when the land owner shot at them, said Rex Evans, spokesman for the Liberty County Sheriff's Office.

The trio of trespassers fled into a wooded area, setting off a search late Friday with tracking dogs from the Texas Department of Corrections.

Around dawn on Saturday, another person unrelated to the property owner found the three trespassing at a deer camp and held them until sheriff's deputies arrived, Evans said.
