3 burglary suspects arrested after chase from Plano to Richardson

Two suspects are still at large after an attempted break-in at a home in Plano, police say.

One of three suspects was trying to break into a resident’s vehicle about 4 a.m., police say.  When the homeowner confronted the suspect, the suspect pointed a weapon at him, police say. The homeowner retreated and called 911, police say.

The suspect fled in a white Jeep, which police say they located at a nearby convenience store. The Jeep drove away after seeing police, which started a chase on southbound U.S. 75 to Campbell Road.

The men took off running and tried to hide in the bushes. Police dogs helped officers find and catch all three a short time later.

Three suspects got out of the Jeep and ran in three different directions.

The chase started in Plano around 4 a.m. Tuesday after a homeowner confronted the men trying to break into a vehicle.

At one point, the chase reached speeds of 100 mph, according to reports.

Alvarez and Fernandez are charged with evading arrest and Wilson is charged with the unauthorized use of a vehicle.

“Fortunately, there was very little traffic on the road at that time, so that allowed them to continue following the vehicle into Richardson,” said Tilley.

The southbound Highway 75 frontage road in Richardson at Campbell Road was closed as police continued to search the area.

20-year-old Jesse Alvarez was charged with Evading Arrest/Detention; 22-year-old Jose Alfredo Fernandez was charged with Evading Arrest/Detention; 24-year-old Branden Keith Taylor Wilson was charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle.

The homeowner gave police a detailed description of the getaway vehicle; the suspects were then spotted at a nearby and a chase ensued.

 The homeowner who confronted the suspected burglar says he is glad that police made quick arrests in the case.  But, he admits to some sadness as well because “they are young guys,” and then adding, “Get a job… That’s it.”

The robbers were reportedly chased away from a Plano home after a homeowner found one of them inside his car outside his home.
