The Kerr County Sheriff's Office arrested a Comfort man on Thursday after a high-speed pursuit after the man refused to comply with deputies' orders.
Jeffrey McCollum, 35, was wanted in a burglary case, and when he was spotted on Falls Creek Road and pulled over, he sped off at speeds reaching 130 MPH, the sheriff's office said.
The high-speed chase raced from Falls Creek Road to Lower Turtle Creek Road, through Center Point, and ended on Cross Creek Ranch Road, where a foot chase began. The pursuing deputy brought the pursuit to an end by hitting McCollum with two taser rounds.
Sheriff's deputies said McCollum possessed 19 grams of methamphetamine. Booked into Kerr County Jail, McCollum faces charges of suspicion of burglary, evading arrest, resisting arrest. McCollum's burglary bond is $75,000.
"Our Deputies did a great job in this case, preventing this suspect from further endangering the public," Sheriff Larry Leitha said. "This suspect showed a clear disregard for the safety of others, and we are pleased to have him in custody- along with a substantial amount of meth off the streets. In most cases, suspects that run from our Deputies are only stacking more charges. KCSO Deputies acted with courage and professionalism in affecting the arrest of McCollum."
