ANGELINA COUNTY, Texas (KTRE) - On Wednesday, deputies with the Angelina County Sheriff’s Office assisted in a multi-agency pursuit. Deputies pursued a fleeing suspect into the city limits of Lufkin, but all officers lost sight of the vehicle. A short while later the suspect vehicle was located at the Family Crisis Center.

During a brief manhunt, two suspects were located in the woods and taken into custody. They were identified as Dandre Theus, 25, and Demarcus Clements 32, both of Shreveport, according to the sheriff’s statement.

Due to the evidence located, it is suspected the subjects are potentially involved in a ring of vehicle thefts spanning across several states, the Angelina County Sheriff’s Office said.
