A man driving what police say was a stolen truck led officers on a brief chase Tuesday morning before he crashed into a Hurst business, Hurst police said.

The driver and his passenger ran, but one was captured after a foot pursuit.

The other suspect was taken into custody a few hours later when he was found walking around near the area of the crash, Hurst police said.

The suspects were identified as 32-year-old Alejandro Lopez and 31-year-old Edgar Reyes.

This all started about 5:20 a.m. when a resident called 911 and reported someone had stolen his truck out of his driveway in the 800 block of Henson Drive in Hurst.

Within minutes, patrol officers saw the truck in the Bellaire Shopping area in south Hurst and tried to stop it, but the suspect drove away.

The driver of the stolen truck lost control of the vehicle on Texas 10 during the pursuit and crashed into the front windows and door of a motorcycle shop in the 300 block of Texas 10.

No injuries were reported in the crash.

The suspects face charges in the theft of the truck and evading police, according to Hurst police officials.
