MCLENNAN COUNTY, TX (KXXV) -

A San Antonio man is facing multiple charges after leading sheriff deputies on a high-speed chase through McLennan County on Monday morning.

Sheriff Parnell McNamara said 28-year-old David Deberry stole a car, $2,000 and a handgun from a woman at a Walmart in Garland this morning.

Garland PD notified the McLennan County Sheriff's Office about  the suspect traveling on I-35 Southbound around 9:45 a.m. McNamara said Deberry was being tracked by GPS in a cell phone inside the car.

Deberry is accused of attempting to ram a Department of Public Safety unit during the high-speed chase.

The car came to a stop near the access road at mile marker 312 near Troy before 11 a.m. after DPS troopers shot out two tires and the radiator.

"Speeds were well over 100 miles an hour at one point and when the tires started going flat, he was still going over 70 miles an hour basically on two wheels," McNamara said.

The sheriff said he was not surprised the suspect led him on a chase.

"They have 35 or 40 units behind and in front of them and they still try to get away. It's a no win situation but they still try to flee and they put a lot of people in danger. We are very thankful that no police officer or civilian was hurt here today by the way this jerk was driving,"McNamara said.

Authorities said Deberry is facing charges for felony evading, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and possession of a controlled substance. McNamara said the drug charges came after deputies found methamphetamine, cocaine, marijuana, Xanax and Lorazepam in the car with him. In addition, he faces charges for a parole violation out of Hopkins County.  Additional charges may be filed in Garland for the crimes he is accused of committing there.
