Officials said as the pickup attempted to turn onto Big Rivers Road, it veered off the road, and got stuck in a ditch. 

Constable Hayden said there were two suspects in the car, and they were able to detain the passenger, later identified as 54-year-old Robert Nobles, of Splendora, into custody. However, the driver ran into the woods.

Following an extensive search operation involving ground units, K9 teams, drones, and a helicopter, Jesus Gonzalez, a 24-year-old resident of New Caney, was apprehended. Gonzalez was placed in custody for the felony charges of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, possession of a controlled substance, felony evading arrest in a motor vehicle, as well as misdemeanor evading arrest on foot.


Nobles was taken into custody for multiple felony warrants, including resisting arrest, evading arrest and detention with a vehicle, and possession of a controlled substance.
