LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The Angelina County Sheriff's Office is still trying to clear some confusion from Tuesday's police chase which resulted in six arrests, a spokesman said.

According to Lt. Pete Cooper, some of those arrested have not been truthful about who they are, making it complicated to properly book them.

As of 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, no charges have been filed following the chase. Cooper said the suspects will likely be arraigned on Thursday.

Six suspects, including a man out on bond and charged with murder in connection with the 2007 Etoile slayings, were apprehended Tuesday following a two-vehicle chase in the Homer area.

According to an officer with the Angelina County Sheriff's Office, law enforcement had a warrant for the arrest of Stephen DeWayne Wallace, 33, with a charge of tampering with evidence/methamphetamine and for a possible kidnapping. Wallace was caught in the 800 block of Miles Road in Homer.

Angelina County Sheriff, Kent Henson said they received a report Monday night that Wallace was connected to a kidnapping. Henson did confirm there was a kidnapping victim involved and she is doing fine. The victim's name has not been released.
