HILL COUNTY, TX (KXXV) - Two men wanted on theft charges in Denton were arrested Thursday night after leading authorities on a chase that ended in Hill County.

According to DPS spokesman DL Wilson, the incident started just before 5:30 p.m. Thursday night with a theft report at the Bellmead Walmart. Bellmead police responded and saw the suspect's vehicle, a Chrysler with Kentucky license plates, leaving the parking lot.

A pursuit began shortly after, as the driver took Loop 340, onto Highway 84. Authorities lost sight of the vehicle, but a DPS helicopter happened to be in the area, and quickly spotted the vehicle from the air.

The helicopter was able to direct a trooper to the area, and the trooper pursued the vehicle on Highway 84, then at the split onto Highway 31. The trooper was able to stop the vehicle on Highway 31, near Mt. Calm in Hill County.

The driver and passenger were taken to the Hill County Jail on a charge of evading arrest in a motor vehicle. The driver, identified as 50-year-old Neil Martin of Oklahoma, was also charged with fraudulent use/possession of identifying information under 5 items.

Martin and the passenger, Ale Keith, 40, of Kentucky, were wanted on theft charges out of Denton County. After arraignment, they will be taken to Bellmead to face theft charges.

Hubbard police and the Hill County Sheriff’s Office deputies assisted at the scene.
